http://www.flickr.com/photos/mausaldanha/ / Honeyboy Edwards is playing Miami Beach's Colony Theatre this Saturday fresh off winning the lifetime achievement award at this year's Grammy'.
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.
