Cathy Ponton King Interview

The Falls Church News Press, has an interview with Cathy Ponton King. King started performing at a young age singing Irish songs. She continued performing Irish music until she met Muddy Waters, and then she became a blues performer.

Here is what she said about Muddy in the article:

“He was great: his singing, his guitar playing,” she said. “He used to play a slide guitar and it was just piercing, just unbelievable piercing, right into your cerebellum, right into your heart … That really riveted me to want to play music.”

You really need to read the complete interview. It is interesting how an artist grow and incorporate new styles. For the full interview CLICK HERE.
