I recently travelled down to the mountains of North Carolina for my first performance at Merlefest – “America's top roots-based festival”! I was invited to play at a special blues showcase – “The Greatest Acoustic Blues Show on Earth” – curated by legendary delta blues guitar picker and storyteller Roy Bookbinder.
Jim captured some wonderful video – with kazoo and audience sing-along! Watch here:
It was a great day and wonderful festival! It was also really great watching (and hanging out with) some really great purveyors of the acoustic blues genre, including Ari Eisinger, Richard Ray Farrell, Jody Carroll, and Mr. Roy Bookbinder himself!
From Roy Book Binder:
“Erin was a big hit at Merlefest! The folks all loved her... definitely a great addition to The Greatest Acoustic Blues Show on Earth...”
