'A high, lonesome sound': Blues legend Jimmy 'Duck' Holmes


From Winona Daily News: "Winona residents will have a chance to witness one of the more unique country blues stylists on Thursday, July 16 at the Winona Arts Center at 8 p.m., where Jimmy “Duck” Holmes will perform. Holmes’ Bentonia style of country blues can be directly traced to Skip James, who made his first classic recordings in the 1930s. “It’s eerie and haunting,” said Dave Hundrieser. “It’s a high, lonesome sound that gets right down inside you.”"

Jimmy's tour kicks off tonight in Minneapolis at the 331 Club and he'll be on Harold's House Party at 5pm. You can listen to Jimmy on the radio again on Friday on KUMD at 2pm before his show at the Red Herring Lounge that evening. Charlie will be joining the tour 7/19 - 7/21 with shows in Minneapolis, Northfield, La Crosse, Viroqua.
