The Honey Bees welcome back this travelling troubadour and his ghost town blues. The man in his own words –

‘The archetypal image of a bluesman: outcast from proper society and stalked by personal demons.

The defining characteristic of Delta blues is instrumentation and an emphasis on rhythm and “bottleneck” slide.

When Holehouse arrived in a new town, he would play for tips on street corners or in front of the local barbershop or a restaurant.

Holehouse also had an uncanny ability to establish a rapport with his audience — in every town in which he stopped, Holehouse would establish ties to the local community that would serve him well when he passed through again a month or a year later.

Okay, so these things where written about Delta blues musicians of the 1920s and 1930s but sums up what I am trying to do now. I travel and I play music for music’s sake. It has its roots in the Delta blues with my own personal twist on it. I live by my rules and those rules are best summed up by something a friend of mine from Winnipeg told me once: creativity, adventure and people.

Things I will not do:

  • Appear in my own music videos!
  • Have my name or face on a shirt!
  • Sell my soul!’
