With only a few weeks until the blues world descends upon Memphis, TN, for the International Blues Challenge (IBC) we bring you two performers who will be competing for honors. Ms. Valerie June is the Memphis Blues Society representative in the Solo/Duo category. A wonderful vocalist and guitar player Valerie crafts what she calls “Organic Moonshine Roots Music.” With only about 5 years of playing experience, her talent seems endless. A featured performer on the Emerging Artist Stage at this past Biscuit Festival Valerie is on track to be a big name in the near future. We get to talk to Valerie and listen to her music. Then Ms. Toni Dodd will join us. Front woman from the band Toni Dodd and Southbound Blues, they are the Santa Clarita Valley Blues Society entry into this years IBC, as they were back in 2004. They play a well blended mix from time tested Blues, R&B. Swing, Jump Blues, Texas Boogie, and Second Line to their own brand of well-crafted original material. We will talk to Toni about their upcoming trip and listen to music from their album God Loves The Blues. Remember, if you can not listen live, the show will be archived after it airs and available for download at your convenience.
