From the very start, "Rooster" Rick Jackofsky held the crowd's attention with his natural storytelling ability and encyclopedic knowledge of the history of American roots music . . . One of the many stickers that adorn Jackofsky's well-traveled guitar case is a quote from Jimi Hendrix: "Knowledge speaks but wisdom listens." And, people listened intently.

I’m quite pleased to be able to feature some music (Nickels and Dimes) on this blog, and what a wonderful song as well. I feel like Woody Guthrie is back.
