Papa King and Daryll play the blues acoustically

 So I had to check out a late announced show at Jimmy’s Pub, Jan. 25 featuring the duo playing a solid show of acoustic blues.

 I caught their last set of the night, which featured the gravelly vocals and acoustic guitar of Papa King as Düus  added tasteful solos on electric guitar while growling put background vocals.

 They played several original songs as well as interesting covers of Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and a hot version of the blues classic “I’m Ready,” with which they ended their set around 1 in the morning.
