Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival
03/17/16: ‘Razorblade’ Stewart expected home Sunday


Well-known Clarksdale bluesman, Josh “Razorblade” Stewart, has been hospitalized with back problems in the Memphis Veterans Administration Hospital for approximately a month, but is expected home Sunday, according to John Holmes, Delta Blues Museum After-School music teacher.


Holmes said Stewart, who performs regularly at the Sunflower River Blues Festival and Ground Zero Blues Club, told him he was paralyzed and in a wheelchair following a slipped disc.


With “Ah Hah,” his signature vocal refrain, Stewart has showcased many young student musicians in his stage performances, and welcomed hundreds of visitors to Clarksdale.

john fahey 「sunflower river blues」 思い入れありすぎる曲、やっと良い感じのカバーのバージョンできたかも。本人も何回も録音していて全部違うバージョンで弾いているから、カバーするにあたっても変奏は必要… https://t.co/wsatFmvUxN
