Diggin’: “Slap ‘Em Down” by Tad Walters
inUncategorizedon April 30, 2015
Tad Walters was one of the first Music Maker artists I saw perform, at a SOOTS event in 2011 in Raleigh. Tad is a Next Generation artist, and he performed his own set at that show while also backing up the other MM Musicians, including the late George Higgs, on harmonica. Since then, I haven’t seen Tad live but I stumble across tracks of his in our archive now and again. This one popped up on my iTunes while I was working on a press release for our Freight Train Blues series (in Carrboro this spring), and since Tad is performing in that series as well as this weekend with John Dee Holeman at the Birthplace of Country Music, it seemed fitting to make it this week’s Diggin’!
Check out Tad Walters’ classic blues tune, and don’t forget to catch one of his shows!
