San Antonio Blues Society Present; Swamp Cabbage and Coolcat Charlie at Sam's Burger Joint, Wednesday Sept. 25th

Swamp Cabbage
Coolcat Charlie


"The Seminoles, Timuquans and other Native Floridians harvested, boiled and ate the hearts of the Sabal palm tree. Steamed and served as a stew it's a rustic delicacy similar to artichoke hearts and traditional cabbage. That essence of the "real" Florida is the basis for Swamp Cabbage's inspirational archetype: a mish mash of genres boiled into a stew of mixed blues, jazz, soul, southern rock, Appalachian and even classical vibes.

Swamp Cabbage was formed in 2001 by veteran guitarist Walter Parks, who built an international career as the lead guitarist for Woodstock legend Richie Havens. Parks, who recently marked his debut as a solo artist with the release of his self-titled album earlier this year, formed the group along with bassist Jim DeVito and drummer Jagoda as a way to explore his southern musical influences."
