A rareish and evocative shot of Buddy Holly on an earlier winter tour:
arriving on his tour bus in Rochester, New York, to play at the Auditorium Theater,
Sunday January 19, 1958.
I think the photo is by Lewis Allen, published a while ago in The Guardian.

The great Son House was living in the slums of Rochester NY at the time, having moved there in 1943. It's where he gave up playing, sold his guitar and, later, would be amazed to be ‘rediscovered’.

Michael, This is assuming it isn't an April Fools day joke. There seem to be quite a few other mentions including an interview with the films director which suggest the story is legit.
