New Old Music from Peg Leg Howell – “Peg Leg Stomp”

Peg Leg Howell led a very spicy life to say the least. He lost his leg in a fight and was in and out of jail for bootlegging. A self-taught guitarist, he supplemented his income performing his music wherever he could. With the help of Eddie Anthony, Joshua Howell (Peg Leg) bridged the gap between Country and 12 Bar Blues. After listening to this song, I wish I could have seen Peg Leg perform.
