Big Joe Duskin


The Alabama-born son of a Baptist preacher, Big Joe Duskin grew up to become one of the stalwarts of the Cincinnati blues scene.

His father's objections continued to weigh on him, however. Despite showing promise with his guitar playing and sweet, soulful, singing at Cincinnati nightspots -- and, after being drafted into the United States Army during World War Two, in U.S.O.

clubs -- he gave up music after being discharged. Taking a job with the post office, he kept his musical talents a secret for another quarter-of-a-century.
