Clarksdale, Mississippi's favorite Okie-transplant — Bill Homans AKA Watermelon Slim — is indeed a "Traveling Man"! Sure, he plays Clarksdale's clubs and jukes like Bluesberry Cafe, Hambone, Red's and Ground Zero Blues Clubs plus our various festivals here, but he also travels the world, often playing shows alone. That's what this new 2-CD set represents: Watermelon Slim singing, playing guitar and/or harmonica solo while on the road, far from home. If you've been lucky enough to enjoy Slim's solo show, then you know what to expect, and he delivers. If you haven't seen him solo yet, then here is your primer.
