T-Bone Walker, Linden and Avinger Texas

I Thought you might enjoy this FB post about T-Bone Walker
Linden is the next town up the road 14 miles from Avinger where we had a blueberry farm and lived for 25 or so years.  Linden is the county seat of Cass County Texas and also the home of Don Henley.  When we lived there in the beginning late 1980s, there was an annual talent show that was awesome.  The musical talent in that little community something to be heard and experienced. 
Avinger itself is home to John Early and his nationally renown Bluegrass group, the Hickory Hill band.  Hickory Hill is an early name for the town of Avinger.  John and I sang in the choir of the Avinger United Methodist church, where we sat together in the tenor section.  John tried unsuccessfully to keep me in harmony and on key.  John Early and Richard Bowden, another Linden native are entertaining together on tour this summer.  Much talent from such a small population center.
