    Amazing player. Another austonite I know is Big John Mills. I played with him sunday. I'm surprized he doesnt get much recognition around these parts. He's a chickin pickin virtuoso.

    Fantastic player and great guy. He's been over here a couple of times.

    Grissom came in second.

    I saw Redd at the Continental Club a couple years ago, the place was packed at 3:00 on a Sunday afternoon. Great show...plus he's a decent singer and good storyteller with a sense of humor. This award is quite an accomplishment considering the talent in Austin.
