Tigertail Productions booked the gig well in advance. Tickets are still available for $35 to $50.
Honeyboy told us, "I don't know nothing else to do but play the blues and play my guitar, so if I hang around the house I figure I won't wanna do nothing and just keel over. Ya know what I mean? So I keep a doin' what I gotta do."
Here's the audio from our interview with Honeyboy Edwards himself. He talks about touring, whiteboy blues, his picks, and the Delta in the far east.
