It's likely that none of the other nominees, in any category, have either the miles or the memories Courtney has chalked up in his career. The 84-year-old has traveled from the cotton fields of Texas, to dancing in a three-ring circus and along that road he found the music that has sustained his life.
He's an award-winning, nationally known bluesman and a staple on the San Diego music scene.
Recently he sat down with us to tell stories and play music.
Tomcat Courtney performs Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at The Turquoise in North Pacific Beach and at La Gran Tapa on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m.
