CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Your Enemy Can't Carm You - Flora Molton

Born 1908, Virginia, USA, d. 31 May 1990, Washington DC, USA. Molton began preaching at the age of 17, not taking up guitar until 1943, when she moved to Washington DC. Virtually blind, she supported herself by playing in the streets. From 1963, she made appearances on the folk circuit, and was later signed by a European record company when she visited Europe in 1987. Her slide guitar playing in "Vastopol" (open D) was basic but intense, owing much to the blues whose verbal content she fiercely rejected. Her delivery was generally reminiscent of an unsophisticated Sister Rosetta Tharpe, particularly when Molton was assisted by more skilful musicians.
