New Novel by Bryan Krull Tells the Story of the Delta Blues Through the Eyes of a Prodigy Lil’ Choo-Choo Johnson, Bluesman; Published by Dog Ear Publishing

Spencer Port, NY, July 18, 2010 --( At the tender age of 10, Earl “Lil’ Choo-Choo” Johnson left his home in the company of his deadbeat uncle and embarked on an amazing musical journey, taking him from the Mississippi Delta to the blues clubs of Chicago and Cleveland, and eventually around the world. He meets up with the greatest names in blues history, including the mysterious Robert Johnson and the charismatic Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters. Lil’ Choo-Choo’s story is the story of the blues in the 20th century.

Filled with colorful characters and vivid description, this book, published by Dog Ear Publishing, is not just a rollicking delve into the history of the blues, but a story of a man who overcomes great odds to become not just a great musician, but a loving husband, father and role model. Lil’ Choo-Choo is an admirable character—a steady, dependable man in the midst of wild temptation and passionate music.

Bryan Krull is a history teacher, with degrees from the University at Buffalo and the University at Albany, as well as a PhD from University of Wisconsin-Madison. His background in history serves him well in this, his first novel. There is tremendous depth and attention to detail to be found in Lil’ Choo-Choo Johnson, Bluesman.
