Diggin’: “Give Me Back My Wig” by John Dee Holeman

inNewson October 11, 2012

John Dee will be at the Richmond Folk Festival this weekend, Oct. 12-14!  Check out this “Diggin'” straight from our newsletter:

John Dee Holeman has a new dog. Whitney and I stopped by to visit with John Dee and Joan after work one night last week. As we walked in, I saw a ball of fur scurry under John Dee’s chair. I though maybe I had seen something I shouldn’t have but I couldn’t resist.  “I think there’s something under your chair John Dee.”

“I got a dog and it won’t give me the time of day. It only wants to be with John,” Joan (John Dee’s lady) croaked.

John Dee laughed and laid back in his chair like a man in charge. The dog poked his little face out from under the chair where it hid.

It’s hard to think of this man ruffled for any reason. His cool delivery on “Give me back my wig” taking the acknowledgement of a loved one’s betrayal with his signature poise and resolve, is a snapshot of the real John Dee, possibly the coolest guy I have ever met. Listen and hear for yourself.
