Juke Joint Judy
Started playing guitar in 1964 and played the blues on an old
Silvertone. Under the band name of "Pearl" played as a guitar
duo with a friend. On the same bill as Albert King in 1975, Albert asked
Judy to join his tour after hearing her playing the blues. Judy was
hesitant to hit the road on tour and declined the offer. After the guitar
sat under the bed for over 30 years, Judy has again returned to the blues and
played at Clarksdale's Juke Joint festival at Wade's Barber Shop.
I was fortunate in 2006 to see Juke Joint Judy sitting in at Red's in
Clarksdale with Big Jack Johnson. Do yourself a favor and try to
catch Judy in one of the Chicago joints or out on the road. St Louis Frank
says, "You won't be disappointed with Judy and the real deal Jukin'
