“My first exposure to bones playing came about 25 years ago from an old black man named J. C Burris, who played bones and harmonica at the same time. He was from Durham N.C. and had played with medicine shows in the south. I thought it was the greatest thing I had ever heard, and immediately set out to learn and have been playing since. My wife and I perform in retirement homes and senior centers here in the San Francisco Bay Area, and also at local folk festivals.”
