Michael Dyson, head of the Blue Shoe Project — the non-profit dedicated to teaching and preserving traditional blues — may have been the last winner to receive his Grammy (he won it back in February for the album, Last of the Great Mississippi Delta Bluesmen — Live in Dallas). It never arrived at his home.
Dyson called the Recording Academy, they called the post office. Turns out it got lost in the mail. (Memo: A handy excuse to use in the future — the mailing label had fallen off the box.) But the award was tracked down and retrieved.
And now it’s set for display this Saturday at the free Blue Shoe Blues Festival in The Village at Colleyville 62 Main Street. All proceeds from the concert benefit the project’s outreach program. For more info, visit the Blue Shoe Project‘s website.
