Wade Walton & Honeyboy Edwards

Wade Walton is a unique individual having spent his entire life in Clarksdale, cutting hair and slapping out blues rhythms on his razor strap. A barber for 55 years Wade has probably known more blues performers and has performed for and with more blues performers than anybody else around the Clarksdale area. No trip to Clarksdale would be complete without a trip to Wade Walton's barber shop. Many a Blues fan has made the trip to sit in his chair and listen to him talk about and perform the Blues. A great guitarist and harp player in his own right he's also a mean barber so you get double your money's worth. Wade is a favorite performer at Blues Festivals and he brings along his razor strap to show folks how it's done. Don't miss him if he's scheduled in your town. If you support live Blues acts, up and coming Blues talents and want to learn more about Blues news and Fathers of the Blues, Like ---Bman’s Blues Report--- Facebook Page! I’m looking for great talent and trying to grow the audience for your favorites band! ”LIKE”
