David Honeyboy Edwards was a bluesman who learned how to make a living playing on street corners in the Delta from Big Joe Williams in the 1930s beginning at age 17. He traveled from town to town on freight trains. At the time I interviewed him in 2003 at age 88. At the time, he may have been the only living bluesman to have direct knowledge of and performed with many of the pre-war greats such as Charlie Patton Tommy Johnson and Robert Johnson. He had amazing recall for past events and had just recently written a book, “The World Don’t Owe Me Nothing”. We talk about these legends of the blues and life as a bluesman in the early days. Though portions of these interviews have been previously broadcast, a full 2 hour show telling Honeyboy’s story has never been broadcast before on WORT. Tune in Saturday night at 8 PM Central time to hear about the life and music of one of the true greats of the blues.
