is this week's Friday Feature.
On Sunday, Ronnie and I had the pleasure of meeting Joe Ham.
We sat at a table right next to where he was playing and soon connected with him, listening to some "local" music. He sang about Ranson which made us laugh. Then he sang a song that really hit home.
Those of you that have been in the county as long as me (and even longer), will remember this story:
Well-known Charles Town regular found dead at train station
By DAVE McMILLION | September 28, 2007
CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -
He could be seen just about anywhere in town, munching on a snack on a street corner or basking in the sun on a downtown bench. And Willie Diggs had an unmistakable walk, dipping his body in a slow motion walk that some described as a swagger. "Everybody knew Willie. If you didn't know him by name, you knew him by sight," said Roger Ramey, spokesman for Charles Town Races & Slots. Diggs' presence in town sadly came to an end when police found him dead Wednesday night in an old railroad building along Summit Point Road on the western edge of town.
Yep, his song was about "Diggs"! We shared stories about the famous guy and then Joe told me he had a picture. Of course, I just had to have a copy =)
But, back to the featured guy, Joe is an outstanding musician. He can be heard in Harpers Ferry at the Canal House Cafe as well as many wineries. Click here to find out where you can find Joe!
You can also follow him on Facebook.
It's great to see such "local" talent! I am sure you will agree.
