6 JUNE 2016

Down and out in Sweden

Our dear friend Barrelhouse Chuck recently made another trip to Finland and Sweden to entertain all his blues loving fans over there. He was accompanied by another great Chicago piano man, Erwin Helfer, Westside Andy (harmonica),  and Oscar Wilson (frontman for the CashBox Kings).  They had several sets in Finland...then Chuck was overcome with pneumonia and hospitalized.  He's still there recuperating.  He's asking for your thoughts and prayers.  He was to entertain at the great CHICAGO BLUES FEST next week.  He'll have to miss that gig, but perhaps, he'll be well enough to travel and be back home in Illinois with his lovely wife, Betsy, soon.  I painted this sign that Sheila posted on Facebook.
