JAN 14, 2015 – HuffPo has an amazing article up by Priscilla Frank about photographer Lou Bopp documenting the last vestiges of a great American culture, the “Old School” Delta Blues musicians that would fill the juke joints with their amazing and truly American sound for so many decades. Sadly though, with the move towards “Hard Rock Cafe” and “TGIF”, these musicians and the juke joints are quickly disappearing. See the amazing photos on HuffPO here.  (photo credits: Joe Mazzola and Masahiro Sumori – CC)
