Well said from his FB page: It was amazing to play my old underground haunt Hashigo Zake solo last night. I've played there many times with a band so last night was kind of an experiment for me to see if I could carry it with just guitar and voice. It was AWESOME. They were turning folks away at the door and the crowd was REALLY into it. There's something very cool about playing my tunes alongside music from as far back as the 1920s to a listening & appreciate crowd. When I play I always hope I've made a blues convert or two, or at least turned some folks onto some of the great older shit. Last night I'm sure I did. I also played a few tunes with the delightful Delia Shanly on drum kit, while I hit the Telecaster all Pops Staples-styles . . . . that went great too. Amazing gig.
