Sunday Morning Blues
There was some serious history floating about that we needed to talk about and document this week.
This week on Sunday Morning blues show #821, we began by focusing on September 23rd – a remarkable day of Blues birthdays!
For show #820 we say congratulations to Johnny A for picking up the gig playing guitar for the legendary Yardbirds featuring Jim McCarty on the band’s U.S. tour this fall.
BB King would have turned 90 this Wednesday September 16th. We lost the venerable and legendary guitarist on May 15th. Of, course, we had to start with some BB music, including the musical tale explaining how he came to name his guitar “Lucille!”
It was the long Labor Day Weekend and we hope you hard-workin’ blues fans had some time to take for yourself! It was also the legendary late singer and songwriter extraordinaire Jimmy Reed’s birthday.
This week we move away from our 16th Anniversary with show #817! We began with a tribute to the Rhythm & Roots Festival Sept. 4-6 at Ninigret Park in Charlestown, RI.
