Jul 17, 2015

Jimmy "Duck" Holmes in the Studio

Listen to our session from July 17, 2015 with this Mississippi native who's keeping the Bentonia style of blues alive. Holmes still runs the Blue Front Cafe, which was started by his parents and is one of the oldest juke joints in Mississippi. His 2006 debut album, Back to Beltonia, won three Living Blues awards, and he's since released three more discs. He performed the same night at the Red Herring Lounge in Duluth.
