My wife and I have been catching Fingers around Jackson lately. He's come home...
We saw him last night at Soulshine Pizza on Highland Colony Parkway in Ridgeland, MS. He was in great form, blowing that harpoon like always. He's moving a bit slower but aren't we all.
He belted out some great blues like Robert Johnson, some Allman Bros. and of course BUFFETT!
The Buffett songs were as follows...
Pirate looks at 40
Wonder why we ever go home
Slipped in a bit of Dixie Diner
He's accompanied by a single guitarist by the name of Mark Whittington. A really great musician himself.
Truly an awesome evening. Up close and personal. He hinted around at getting together with Larry Raspberry again soon. Now that would be cool.
Looking at the Jackson Free Press music listings, they will be doing some more shows in the coming weeks. I also see that Mac McAnally will be at Hal & Mal's on July 9th.

I made enough money to buy North Jackson but I p*** it away so fast... never meant to last.
