My trip to Memphis!
The International Blues Challenge 2020 on Bealestreet, Memphis was great!
Being allowed to do 4 shows in the mecca of the blues and then of the 90 registered duo/solists worldwide finishing at the last 20 in the semifinals was fantastic. Club 152, Pig on Beale and Jerry Lee Lewis’ were the places where I played. The atmosphere was fantastic...dedicated audience, great musicians and a lot of new meetings.
At Pig on Beale I also met Doug macLeod again, during an inspiring workshop ... Afterwards we had a nice chat about beer and in the evening, I was greatly surprised by his presence at my show. So grateful!!!
I did an interview with Isaac Ericksen for his docu about the Blues outside America, I am very curious about the result.
Had a nice ride down to the Crossroads to feel the spirit of Robert Johnson. Also visited the SUN studio, Blues Hall of Fame, STAX and Graceland.
Wow, what an experience...So thanks a million everybody...for your support, to make my dream come true !!!
