Young Man Blues

Saturday 24 September, 7:30pm
Young Man Blues
The Tap & Barrel transforms into a juke joint with night of blues, live and on vinyl records.

My home town is full of ghosts. It is also a blues town. Like all blues towns, Featherstone thrives on shadows and echoes of what once was. Featherstone, like the first two lines of a blues song, likes to repeat itself. Featherstone is the most remote of the blues towns, a long way from the Mississippi Delta, yet if you drew a line between New Orleans and Memphis you might find Featherstone on that line. Somewhere between Rolling Fork where Muddy Waters was born and Clarksdale, the birth town of John Lee Hooker, is Featherstone.– Ian Clayton, Bringing It All Back Home
