Booker’s Guitar

After one of my concerts during a UK tour, a fan approached me as I was signing CDs and said: “If you’d like to see and play the National guitar that belonged to the famous Delta bluesman, Bukka White, I could meet you at your hotel tomorrow morning.” So, I thanked him and arranged to meet him at my hotel the next morning at ten… As a songwriter, singer and guitarist, I’ve always been waiting to make an entire album that belongs to the recorded tradition of the blues songster. The arrival of Booker’s guitar was the sign I’d been waiting on for years.
