John Hiatt & Eddie Pennington


April 18th, 2001 ~ Over the years John Hiatt has played many roles: successful songwriter, soulful rocker, blues boogie man with a message, and recently an acoustic country balladeer. Also, a mini-concert from America's greatest thumbpicker, Eddie Pennington, who spins remarkable tales and tunes. In his day job as an undertaker, Pennington buried his hero: the late guitarist Merle Travis.
