W.C. Clark @ Giddy Ups (08/25/17)

You know, Texas is pretty special.  Monday, we got to see a 65% version of the total eclipse.  Friday, we’re battaning down the hatches for the first major (cat 4) hurricane to hit our coast in 56 years (Carla, 1961).  AND, our favorite honky-tonk played host to an improptu show by none other than W.C. Clark….the Godfather of Austin Blues.

W.C. is quoted as saying, “If the blues is played right, it makes your soul feel clean”.  After listening to him for an hour, in the midst of all that’s been going on, I believe him.

Not many pictures…..I was too busy absorbing the music.  If you have a chance, I hope you’ll make it a point to see this gentleman….with or without his band.  He’s a treasure.
