241 viewsThe principal, Mr. Oftedahl (in the green shirt), enjoyed the performance. Thanks to him, "Hawkeye" was very welcomed in Grafton. Mr. Perry (in the back on the right side) got a little lesson from "Hawkeye" afterward on how to play "The blues had a baby....and they called it rock and roll" on the guitar.

186 views"Hawkeye" told the kids at the Grafton High School performance that he enjoyed putting stickers on his guitar case to show the places that he's been. This is his first Wisconsin sticker. And what better place to receive it than in Grafton, WI....

195 viewsThe kids had fun writing a blues song with "Hawkeye". I think they learned that the blues isn't just sad music. It can actually be quite entertaining and fun.

187 viewsA great reminder for a traveling minstrel. Note the scratches on his guitar from playing so much. I'd say that guitar has some blues in it!

188 views"NO MUSIC....NO LIFE......"
This statement on "Hawkeye's" guitar says so much. I would take a step further and say, "NO BLUES....NO POPULAR AMERICAN MUSIC...NO LIFE......" Now that's something everyone can appreciate....even elementary age students.

194 viewsMy son, as you can see, is really happy to get "Hawkeye's" signature. When he first heard "Hawkeye" on CD prior to meeting him, he looked at the cover of his album and said, "Mom....he's white!" (Maybe he heard a little bit of Bukka White or Son House in "Hawkeye's" voice. After all, he did learn from some of the best blues musicians ever!)
