Tallahatchie River Fest New Albany: James Pirkle Blues Band
I first heard the band last April when they were playing in Oxford. I fell in love all over again when they went to the Mound Bayou September Fest (don't you just love how every town here has a "fest"?) to play a benefit for a community with whom I have also fallen in love.
I was humbled that the band gave me one of their new tee shirts which I will proudly wear when I "go to work on Monday one more time" (Si Kahn).
It is not just that I enjoy their music--which I do--but it is also that these guys are willing to go the extra mile to perform and that they do it for the love of the music and the desire to entertain people who also love music.
Stay tuned for then next few days as I share with you the trip up and down Main Street, New Albany.
