Happy Birthday

James "Yank" Rachell
March 16, 1910--April 9, 1997

The legendary, which is to say fairly obscure, blues mandolin player, who played with Sleepy John Estes and Sonny Boy Williamson #1, lived in Indianapolis from the late 1950s, and we were privileged to see him several times. A great player and a great gentleman.
