MORE ABOUT JIMMY "DUCK" HOLMES

Straight from Bentonia, Mississippi, Jimmy “Duck” Holmes is the embodiment of raw country blues, and the last of the Bentonia Bluesmen. He’s usually found at the Blue Front Café, the oldest surviving juke joint in Mississippi, famous for its buffalo fish, moonshine and the haunting ethereal Bentonia Blues made famous by Skip James and Jack Owens.

One of the most original and uncompromising country blues musicians playing today, Holmes preserves the Bentonia Blues tradition taught to him by the originals, Henry Stuckey and Jack Owens. His records have received critical acclaim, being named as a top ten blues album by National Public Radio and best acoustic blues album of the year.
