Hi Corey, I live down here in the new river valley south of roanoke Virginia. I'm looking for an acoustic guitarist and singer that would like to collaborate with me. I play electric bass and harmonica and six strong. I would like to play some blues and especially presuming blues like that of John d.holeman. any ideas on who I can contact?
