Andy Cohen, In My Girlish Days

Welcome to Something Blue. I’m Hairy Larry and I’ve got the blues, for you.

Andy Cohen, Lift Him Up
Andy Cohen, Hungry Blues

All right now, that’s “Hungry Blues”. Before that we heard “In My Girlish Days”, and “Lift Him Up”, all sung by the acoustic blues trio of Andy Cohen, Bill Ellis, and Eleanor Ellis.

Bill Ellis goes by his full name, William Lee Ellis, when he records or performs solo. Here he is performing at KASU Blue Monday at the Red Goose Deli in Paragould, Arkansas, singing “Midnight Shift”.
