Playing Henry's Boogie: https://vimeo.com/70312775

Enjoy on a Sunday morning. When he plays the sinewy triplets around 1:30, it's like James Carroll Booker meets Eddie Van Halen. Such fun music, with incredible technique.

Cool! I am a huge fan of Corey Harris. I've had several opportunities to hang out with him. Corey toured with Henry Butler ten-ish years ago and boy was that amazing. They played a small venue in Pittsburgh. Good times.
