Woodies on tour: Road trip photos part 4

During our US road trip I took literally hundreds of photos, including quite a few of our group and other friends we met up with. Here's a selection:
This is the group on the first day in Atlanta, at the Northside Tavern. Left to right - me, Dave, Lee and Alan.
Here's one of me with the newly unveiled display commemorating Otis Redding at his home town of Gray, near Macon, Georgia.
On to New Orleans, and here's one of me with Willie Hightower.
Two Northern lads: here are Lee and John Marriott chatting in the d.b.a bar in New Orleans.
Here's me with Brenda Holloway.
Two smart DJs at the Stomp: Robin Tomlin and Lloyd from Melbourne, aka Mohair Slim.
Here's a group photo at the Stomp, with Armand St Martin, Ronnie Cook and Kelly Blackwell.
.Here's another group photo, at the Ooh Poo Pah Doo bar in New Orleans, with Dave and Julie Thomas.
Here is one of me with Judy, owner of the Ooh Poo Pah Doo bar and daughter of Jessie Hill.
In Crystal Springs we were taken to the grave of blues singer Tommy Johnson by the mayor. Here are Dave, Lee and Alan by the headstone.
That evening we bumped into Vera Johnson Collins, Tommy's niece. Here she is with Dave and me.
Here's one of me with excellent blues/soul singer J J Thames in Hal and Mals's in Jackson.
Dave tries to escape the camera lens outside the Blue Front Cafe in Bentonia, Mississippi.
Outside the B B King museum in Indianola.
The railway children: on the tracks at the King Biscuit festival.
Alan and Lee contemplate yet another beer at Huey's Midtown in Memphis.
Alan and Dave look on as the barman at the Blues City Cafe in Beale Street suddenly became the drummer.

Great photos Nick. Like the one where Alan C is practising his grave jumping take off position.
