Subject: RE: Obit: Bois-Sec Ardoin
What a great old guy.

I saw and heard him live, with Mr. Fontenont, a few times ~ not recently ~ in the early days of the New Orleans Jazz Festival, back when the festival was a much more low-key (and more inexpensive!) affair attended almost entirely by local folks.

Interesting that our first word of his passing came all the way from England. Except for Greg, I might not have known about this until the TV news later this evening, or maybe not even until opening up tomorrow morning's newspaper.
