Hey thanks for including this event on your website. This year's festival was great, and it wasn't even as hot as hell as it normally is. I do have to mention that Cathead Blues and Folk art featured Memphis' John Lowe as a sort of one-man-band street performer with his "Lowebow" cigar box guitar. Cool, but I couldn't help but think "King Louie can kick that guy's ass!" when I saw him. I say next year we need to plan a one-man-band mud rasslin' event in downtown Clarksdale...we'll poke a hole in the Sunflower River levee at Quawpaw Canoe Company, flood Delta Avenue with thick black Delta sludge and let 'em have at it. I mean, Louie has been diddling his bow ever since he discovered it as a toddler...surely he can kick some cigar box guitarist's ass? Louie? LOUIE??
