Bill "Howl-N-Madd" Perry is one of the North Mississippi hill country's best-kept secrets--or at least he was, until he and saxophonist Alphonso Sanders took second place in the solo/duo category in this year's International Blues Challenge in Memphis.  Hailing from Abbeville, Mississippi, only a few miles down the road from Foxfire Ranch, he knows how to rock the juke with nothing more than his guitar, his foot, and his voice.  What is it with that voice?  His vocal stylings are haunting, compelling--a broad, choked vibrato that owes something to Howlin' Wolf and something to the diddley-bow, with a gravelly, bourbon-soaked edge.  Some of us think he's the best blues singer in Mississippi.  Maybe that's because he's lived a remarkable, wide-ranging life that has taken him far beyond the Magnolia State.
