Today, I bring you a rare and wonderful treat: Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, who plays a rare form of the blues called the Bentonia Blues. Jimmy’s one of the last people alive who plays this kind of blues named for his home town of Bentonia, Mississippi, where he owns and operates one of the last traditional juke joints in the state, the Blue Front Cafe. You can get Duck’s recordings from St. Louis’ own blues label, Broke and Hungry Records.
