Final photos from the US trip

Here are a final batch of photos from our US music trip.
After leaving New Orleans we went to Crowley, Louisiana, for a swamp blues show at the historic Rice Theatre. Carol Fran was one of a number of blues artists taking part in the show.

Another was guitarist Rudy Richard, seen here with C C Adcock.

Guitar Gable appeared on stage but didn't play due to ill health.

Here's Warren Storm - like C C Adcock, a member of the Lil Band of Gold.

Back in Memphis we caught the North Mississippi All Stars at the Levitt Shell in Overton Park, where a young Elvis once sang.

The last few photos were taken at various stages of our trip. Here's the Gateway Arch in St Louis. Lee and I rode to the top in a tiny tram type compartment, from where there are views of the Mississippi river on one side and the city on the other.

Here are Dave, Lee and Dave in a bar in Springfield.

Dave C poses under the original Stax sign which now sits in the Rum Boogie Cafe on Beale Street, Memphis.

Lee found himself suddenly propositioned by a lady (?) at Wild Bill's in Memphis.

We met up with other Woodies at the Michael Hurtt gig in New Orleans. Here's Alan Lloyd with Dave T and Lee.

Ken, Jay, Paul and Ian were among other Woodies at the show.

Here's me with Paul and his friend Paige at the Ponderosa Stomp.

Martin, Lee and Dave C take a break at the Stomp.

Dave T, Mark (another UK visitor) and me at the theatre in Crowley.

Finally, Lee takes a snap of yet another Memphis recording studio - the Sam Phillips studio on Madison.
