I remember Joann Kelly From Europe when we were there in 1982 with the San
Francisco Blues Festival She were great we did a gig in Germany. She only
sang While some guy name Hans played behind her . We tried to get her to
play guitar She did not feel comfortable With all the American Guitarist
around. One thing about Europeans  Seem to have much respect for American
artist.!!!
