From Bruce Flett at thebluebirds.com: "Buddy Flett will be special guest of Kenny Wayne Shepherd on the Jay Leno Show, Wed, Feb 14!

Kenny, Buddy, Double Trouble(Chris Layton & Tommy Shannnon), Hubert Sumlin, and Bryan Lee will perform "Tina Mare" from "10 Days Out: Blues From the Backroads."

Continues Flett," Jason Coffield will be filling in for Buddy while he's out On the Road with Kenny & the Blues Legends. You remember Jason from the original Voodudes. Jason is a brilliant young blues/rock guitarist, singer and alto saxophonist. And yes, he plays slide guitar! Jason is THE guy to get to fill in for Buddy.

Sun, Feb 18 Buddy returns back home to play the Highland Mardi Gras after Parade party at Columbia Park in Shreveport 4-6pm. Parade starts about 1 30pm

Sat Feb 24 Shreveport's Municipal Auditorium. DANCE to the Bluebirds on the greatest Biggest Dancefloor around! 8-11pm

Complete schedule (well, these days its impossible to keep it totally up to date) at www.thebluebirds.com

Continuing, Flett says, "Nick Spitzer , host of NPR's "American Routes" spoke in Shreveport last night about New Orleans music and re-building the City. With a PhD in Ethnomusicology and the hippest show on Radio; you missed it if you weren't there. He called Bruce yesterday afternoon wanting to know if "anything" had ever been recorded at LeadBellys grave! He was unaware of the Live Recording of "Honk Tonk" with Buddy and Kenny Wayne on acoustic guitars at that hallowed spot for the 10 Days Out DVD/CD, so we made sure he gets a copy right away! And he's looking forward to seeing the Bluebirds at the New Orleans Jazzfest Sunday, April 29."

Danielle and I saw the Kenny Wayne act (which had me up past bedtime).

Buddy was nutin' but grin. I thought he would burst out laughing and pee his pants at any second. It was a great (and dry) performance by the whole band. I wouldn't have known to stay up late if not for your blog, Robert.

Thanks once again for all you do!
