Nat Reese 

When: Thu., June 24, 7 p.m. 2010

"I never can remember being barefooted in the wintertime. I had new shoes in the winter, and I wanted to go barefooted in the summer," West Virginia blues musician Nat Reese told journalist Michael Kline in an interview more than a decade ago. "[My dad] would always buy me a pair of shoes for Sunday school. If I didn't go to Sunday school there was no playing." Born in 1924, Reese has lived through one depression (or more?) and a World War. He's a top-notch storyteller, too, who will join another excellent storyteller and bluesman, recent Raleigh addition Th' Bullfrog Willard McGhee. The show is being presented by a rejuvenated Triangle Blue Society. —Grayson Currin
