Ray Wylie Hubbard Plays "Mother Blues" at the Belmont

Our Busking series with Globe Trek Productions

hit the Belmont this week

, a hotel located in singer Ray Wylie Hubbard's childhood neighborhood of Oak Cliff. In the second part of our series with the venerable artist, he sings "Mother Blues," a long story about the Dallas club. It is told with spare beauty and dry wit, like so many of Hubbard's songs. You can watch above.
