Well, it's about time. For being one of the premier blues women of the 20th century, we've been remiss in our coverage here on Deeper Roots. You can, however, check out our blog post Memphis Minnie on the Ice Box to prepare you for the music we've got for you this coming Friday.  Not only will we share some classic tunes from Minnie and Kansas City Joe McCoy but we'll be pairing much of them with contemporary covers including some special ones: the Alabama Shakes, Maria Muldaur, Precious Bryant, and Eilen Jewell (just to name a few). The article mentioned above is a well worn first hand observation of a Memphis Minnie performance published in the Chicago Defender in 1942, written by Langston Hughes. We've got enough to fill the room...and the airwaves, this coming Friday evening so here's hoping you can drop in.
