Another one I stumbled onto by accident. Went to the Saxon Pub for a Jess Klein show and this guy was on ahead of her. We get there and the band is setting up and it's Scrappy Jud Newcomb on guitar, Bruce Hughes on bass, Cindy Cashdollar on lap and dobro! You gotta be kidding me! So we knew this guy had to be good if those musicians were playing with him. And it turns out he's damn great and I can't believe I didn't know of him because he's been around for quite a while. He has that voice born to sing the blues. He's got a new record out called "Future Blues" and all I can say is he floored me. Seriously terrific.
