Before hitting the stage in Tulsa, OK at the Blue Dome Diner, Jimmy LaFave took a moment to talk about why smoke-free is an important issue to him.
As a non-smoker - Jimmy sometimes plays in smoke filled venues which make him breathe in lots of secondhand smoke.
Studies show that musicians breathe in so much secondhand smoke while playing one show, that it is the equivalent of smoking a pack of cigarettes.
If you every get a chance to see Jimmy LaFave - you should! It was a great show! To find out if he is playing near you, you can go to: http://www.jimmylafave.com/. This July, he will be at the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival.
