Iconic bluesman Charlie Musselwhite comes to Mammoth's Bluesapalooza

July 27, 2012

It’s not often you can walk around Mammoth and rub elbows with a legend.

At least one who’s not running, skiing, snowboarding or dirt-biking.

Yet at this year’s Mammoth Festival of Beers & Bluesaplooza (Thursday through Sunday, next week), concert goers at Sam’s Woodsite can run smack into Charlie Musselwhite, and that’s about as close to legendary as it gets in the blues world.

Musselwhite, a native Mississippian with 30 solo albums, is touring in support of his new recording, “The Well.” It is a highly autobiographical collection of songs that won a Grammy nomination this year.

“Fido,” I said, “what in the world is going on? You’re speaking Yiddish.”

“Oy vey, am I scared!”

“That’s what you said. What’s got your goat? What’s the matter?”

Fido inched closer to my chair, almost right on top of my feet. Then I heard it. Way off in the distance (to my ears, anyway): thunder.

“Oy vey,” Fido said. “Am I scared! And I’m speaking Doggish, not Yiddish. An offshoot.”
