Matthew was featured on "Jump, Jive, and Wail"
 In Memory of Bugs Henderson                  Texas Blues guitarist Bugs Henderson passed away on March 9.  It's hard to believe that it was just a year ago when Bugs Henderson was hosting a benefit concert at Music City Texas for Mouse Weiss. Bugs was always gracious to Matthew, and even shared his stage with Matthew a few times. Bugs set a great example of how to help fellow musicians. We appreciate all that Bugs and his wife Patty Anne did for Matthew and wish we could have gotten to know him better.  - Ella Davidson

About Matthew Davidson -  

 

"His style was advanced for his age," said Steven Johnson, Robert's grandson and vice president of the Robert Johnson Blues Foundation. "It was crisp; it was professional. His style with that electric guitar was amazing. I know Matthew will be a great ambassador for the Foundation".       ~The Shreveport Times - Jan. 4, 2012
