Sunday Morning Blues
We began the show with a five song set comprised of the bands appearing at Indian Ranch later on in the day – and what a line-up it was! BB King, Shemekia Copeland, Robert Randolph, Throwdown Blues Band – a perfect start to Sunday Morning Blues.
As Sunday Morning Blues crashes into July, the show’s 15th Anniversary on August 24 steadily approaches!
This week we began by celebrating the upcoming birthday of Willie Dixon, composer of more blues and classic rock hits than any songwriter!
This week we began with a tribute to legendary British drummer Ginger Baker – who appears at the Wilbur Theater on Sunday June 29 with his Jazz confusion!
For Sunday Morning Blues show #754, we paid tribute to Irish blues guitarist, Rory Gallagher, and Steve Woodward of Westport. MA picked an excellent CHOOSE YOUR BLUES list!
On this beautiful June 1st, we paid tribute to T-Bone Walker, singer/songwriter/guitarist who passed away back in 1975. His most famous song is “Stormy Monday,” but he is most important for his contribution to the use of electric guitar in playing the blues.
This week on Sunday Morning blues we honored our American servicemen and celebrated our freedom! Accordingly, the first set was dedicated to the memory of those who have served.
We started with a birthday tribute to Taj Mahal who turned 72. This iconic musician, born Henry Fredericks in New York City, grew up in Springfield, Massachusetts, so we can rightly consider him to be a Bay State musical hero!
First of all – it was a beautiful and happy Mothers Day! Thank you to Cheryl O’Neal for her awesome Mothers Day CHOOSE YOUR BLUES list to create a fine tribute to mamas everywhere!!
Happy May! Finally, the weather is starting to figure out it’s Spring! We thought we’d have some fun by playing you some happy “may” songs to kick off the show! Hope you’ve got those flowers sprouting!
