When listening to Catfish Keith yesterday, I suddenly remembered like the thunder and lightening I left behind in Georgia the acoustic slide music of Ellen McIlwaine, who I saw in concert a couple of times in Atlanta before she moved to Canada. Her voice and guitar are equally amazing. Here she is performing “Down So Low.” If you’ve never heard her, you’re welcome.
