Show # 267 – Live, Uncut & Uncensored Conversations With “Musicians You Should Know”
The Exit56 Blues Fest takes place in Brownsville, TN on May 23rd and includes a Blues Concert, Corvette Car Show, Classic Car Cruise-In and a Deep Fried BBQ Eating Contest. I will speak with Sonia Outlaw-Clark about the event and how you can be a part of this wonderful celebration.
Nate Myers has been playing harmonica since boyhood. He has performed with many wonderful musicians and he and his band, The Aces are well know for their great shows. Nate has a new album out entitled It’s My Music and I will chat with him about the album and his career.
Toots Lorraine and her band, The Traffic, are out of Jacksonville, FL, but their music is West Coast Jump Blues & Swing with Chicago Blues mixed in for comfort. I will speak with Toots and her guitarist husband, Chad Dant about their journey to this point and the music and the new album, Make It Easy.
COUCH KID NEW MUSIC WORLD PREMIER! My ‘nephew’ Mr. Sipp brings his upcoming album The Mississippi Blues Child to The Couch and we get to share it with y’all a couple of weeks before it drops. Thrilled to be doing this and let me tell you, I have been playing the darn thing over and over since it arrived!
Then another Couch Kid New Music Segment with Mark Wenner from The Nighthawks comes by for the third time, with music from their new release, Back Porch Party. Once again, this album is acoustic and was recorded live to tape before a studio audience. We’ll speak with Mark about the goings on of the Nighthawks and the music on this great new album
