Mississippi Joe Callicott
Mississippi Delta Blues
Callicott is the third artist who played at the Memphis Country Blues’ Festival to go on to release a full-length on Blue Horizon, with his ‘Presenting the Country Blues’ LP in 1969. Callicott hailed from Mississippi – Nesbit to be exact – and personified the Delta blues spirit. He released the album, ‘Presenting the County Blues’ not far from his death in 1969. Callicott has also had a selection of his recordings reissued by the Fat Possum label.
