This is at least the second annual Hot Blues for the Homeless event. Last year I went and it was terrific. Unfortunately, I will be in England and will miss it this year. But Son House was a long time resident of Rochester and Joe Beard (who knew House personally) is simply wonderful - an extremely talented composer & musician and a very nice fellow. Hearing Joe will (on its own) make it worth going and the dough goes to a good cause too. So, here are a couple of (not at all secret) different renditions of Son House's "Death Letter". The top is Son House himself, the one on the bottom is The White Stripes.
