CorrespondentAugust 14, 2009 

From South Carolina's Low Country to Durham's All People's Grill, guitar ace Cool John Ferguson combines the folk sounds of Gullah culture with gospel, blues, rock, jazz and other musical forms into an original mix of down home delights. Blues great Taj Mahal ranks Cool John as one of the world's five greatest guitar players. You can see and hear for yourself tonight, when Cool John caresses the six-string in an open-air concert at Hillsborough's Weaver Street Market.
