Special guest FENN WILSON
Inspired by Fred McDowell and RL Burnside, he taught himself to play guitar and became a front man, playing a style of blues unique to the north Mississippi hill country of Tate, Panola, and Marshall Counties. R.L. takes whatever the “good Lord” puts in his mind, channels it down through his fingers, and gives it to the world.
