Big Muddy 2001 picture gallery
Hope that you were there, on Lacledes Landing
for 2 beautiful days of warm sunshine and cool blues! Some of the best
of St. Louis took to the 4 stages spread out in this historic riverfront
district, and some of the finest regional and national talent were invited
to join them. Local legends Oliver
Sain, Fontella Bass, Erskine
Ogelsby, Arthur Williams and Bennie
Smith, along with some of the "new blood" of St. Louis
blues such as Rich McDonough, Pennsylvania Slim, Melissa
Neels, and Brian Curran were on hand to showcase that truly unique
St. Louis sound!
A new sound discovery (always a fun event) was the Eric
Sardinas band, who simply tore the house down. A highly recommended
addition to your "must see" list! And of course the tradition
was there in the form of Snooky
Pryor, the man who introduced the harmonica to a microphone and
created that "electric harp" sound! Little
Milton Campbell, Coco
Montoya, Tom Hall & Leroy
Pierson, the list of great acts just goes goes on & on!
Here's just a sample of the sights of the Big Muddy 2001, hope you enjoy!
