LITTLE SILVER
GRAHAM WOOD DROUT’S IKO IKO/Bullets in the Bonfire Vol. 1: For those of you that never made it farther south than the casinos in Valdosta, Graham Drout is the south Florida version of Duke Robillard. The mainstay of the blues scene down there for over 30 years, he’s the proverbial big fish in the small pond–but he’s never let that get in the way of making others look good, particularly when they’ve taken his songs to greater blues glories. Even though he’s played in everyone’s sandbox, it’s easy to call him a blues pro even though he’s been around enough to call what he does gulf coast Americana fusing all you would expect and more. Well done.
