CASH McCALL – R.I.P. – aka Morris Dollison Jr. -Cash remarked recently that “the late great Willie Dixon taught me everything I know about the blues and I played with him for many many years.” Dixon wrote some of the most coveted songs in the history of popular music and enriched many a glittering career. In 1978 Cash performed with the Etta James band as the opening act for the Rolling Stones “Some Girls” album tour of America -Dixon wrote “Little Red Rooster”.

HILL COUNTRY BLUESMAN ~ Robert Wolfman Belfour
Robert “Wolfman” Belfour (September 11, 1940 – February 24, 2015) was an Americanbluesmusician. He was born in Red Banks, Mississippi. When he was a child, his father, Grant Belfour, taught him to play the guitar, and he continued his tutelage in the blues from the musicians Otha Turner, R. L. Burnside, and Junior Kimbrough. Kimbrough, in particular, had a profound influence on him. His music was rooted in Mississippi hill country traditions, in contrast to Delta blues. His playing was characterized by a percussive attack and alternate tunings.
