Pine Bluff bluesman Cedell Davis will record a live album at Stickyz Oct. 20, with R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey of The Minus 5 and The Young Fresh Fellows, Barrett Martin of Screaming Trees, Joe Cripps, former percussionist for Brave Combo and probably others.
Buck, McCaughey and Martin all played on Davis's 2002 album "Lightning Struck the Pine," released on Fast Horse Recordings, the label started by Cripps, Martin and Buck. Here's an interesting piece on that project.
