Thread Name: The fiddle and the blues?
Subject: RE: The fiddle and the blues?
Howard "Louie Bluie" Armstrong, still going strong in his 90s, is a wonderful blues fiddler (and mandolinist and guitarist). I first saw him back in the 1970s when he was playing with his lifelong partners, the equally wonderful Carl Martin and Ted Bogan.
Carl and Ted have passed on, but Howard's performances are not to be missed. Any of Howard's or Martin, Bogan & Amrmstrong's recordings are highly recommended.
