Thanks Marty, today I’m going to sing a song I learned from a blues legend, Sam Myers.
I love the King Biscuit Blues Festival and I used to attend every year. One of my favorite acts was Anson Funderburgh and the Rockets with Sam Myers. When they played I was always front and center dancing to their great blues.
One of the songs Sam did was “I’m Your Professor”. Because of ASU I just had to add the song to my repertoire. It’s a jump blues with humorous lyrics.
Well, Sam died in 2006, but I kept on singing that song. And when Delta Legends played at The Biscuit there I was with John and Jeremy singing “I’m Your Professor”. Of course, I dedicated it to the memory of Sam Myers.
Delta Legends are John Shepherd, guitar; Jeremy Burnett, harp; and Hairy Larry, bass and harp. We all sing. John and Jeremy are from Wynne and I’ve lived in Arkansas for over fifty years, but even before I moved to Arkansas I had Arkansas Roots because Chicago Blues was created by musicians who moved to Chicago from the Delta.
Ok now, here’s Delta Legends on the Cedell Davis Stage at the King Biscuit Blues Festival on October 11, 2019, playing a song I learned from Sam Myers, “I’m Your Professor”.
And that’s Delta Legends doing “I’m Your Professor” at the King Biscuit Blues Festival. Don’t miss Something Blue, Saturday night at 10:00, for more Delta Legends, Tab Benoit, and The Bridge.
