Jontavious Willis on a Cigar Box – Blue Yodel No. 1 (T for Texas)

Jontavious Willis at The New Orleans Cigar Box Guitar Festival with a revision of Jimmie Rodgers’ “Blue Yodel No. 1 (T for Texas)” a 1928 release that was “a national phenomenon and generated an excitement and record-buying frenzy that no-one could have predicted” (Wikipedia). Rodgers is widely considered the father of country music, meanwhile Jontavious is getting known as a 20 year-old blues phenom, who told me that he’s more than a little bit country. He will be opening for Taj Mahal in March.

Save the Blues’ exclusive interview with Jontavious coming soon…
