John’s Carpet House

UTR-Webmaster Episode 604

2133 Frederick St., Detroit, MI

It’s called John’s Carpet House. A lively social gathering and jam season that happens every Sunday afternoon to pay tribute to a man who loved his neighbors … and loved to play the blues. And even though there’s no carpet … the house is gone … and John is no longer with us, Albert “Big Pete” Barrow keeps these soulful sessions alive to honor his name.

Now, when it comes to having a good time in Detroit … I can always use … people who love the blues.

So, with a little bit of sun, soul and social lubrication … I even managed to muster up some courage … get up on stage … and get down with some funky blues …

Next time you’re in need of a funky good time … on any given summer Sunday afternoon, just head for the corner of Frederick and St. Aubin … That’s where you’ll find John’s Carpet House … and a whole messa happy Detroiters.
