Photos from Baton Rouge & Bogalusa

We are back from our US road trip, gradually recovering from our exertions. Here is the first batch of photos from the trip. This is the four of us at the recreated juke joint at the Museum in West Baton Rouge which we visited at the start of our trip.
Here another one at the museum: this is me with the motto for the trip on the wall .
In Baton Rouge we visited the Buddy Stewart museum and record shop. This is his daughter Philippa who now runs the shop. There are thousands of records there and we paid a second visit later in the trip.
We spent the evening at the blues jam at Phil Bradys's bar where this band was one of several playing.
Moving on, we went to the Bogalusa Blues and Heritage Festival. This is Big Daddy O.
Here are a couple of photos of blues man Kenny Neal.
This is Sonny Landreth, an excellent guitarist from Lafayette,
On day two there was a Fessaround - a tribute to Professor Longhair. Here is piano player Tom Worrell and the band, one of Marilyn Barbarin and one of me with Al 'Carnival Time' Johnson.
On day two, here is Chris LeBlanc.
This is blues guitarist Vasti Jackson.
Here is the excellent Ruthie Foster.
Here are a few of the headliner at the festival, the great Bobby Rush and his dancers, including Mizz Lowe.
Finally in this batch, here are the four of us at Bogalusa. From left to right Dave Carroll, Lee Wilkinson, Alan Lloyd and me (Nick Cobban). More photos soon.
