Forrest McDonald was seven years old when he first heard blues man Josh White perform and as he puts it, “I was hooked!”
In the summer of 1964 he hitchhiked to NYC where he met and was influenced by Muddy Waters.
From there, it just kept happening for Forrest and now, he has released his 12th album “Turnaround Blues” and he will join me to talk more about this incredible journey.
David Vest is called a fabulous, foot-stompin’ roots-rocker and boogie-woogie piano player.

Anthony Rosano and The Conqueroos are out of Norfolk, VA and have made it to the semi-finals of the International Blues Challenge twice since forming in 2012.
