Big Boy Henry was a North Carolina Blues artist. When I moved to NC in the mid eighties I played music at local bars and festivals with Big Boy. We also recorded together at his home in Beufort NC. This piece has a sound module behind the “Play The Blues” board that the viewer can press to play a 20 second clip of Big Boy playing one of his best known songs “ Mr President”.
