This is show #78, Bruce’s Blues!
Hey, welcome back, everyone! This is your blues loving bluesman Dave Harrison from the Star City of Virginia… I’ve got another great show for you! Having just experienced one heckuva blues festival at the Blues Fest 09 in Wheeling WV, I’ve decided to feature many of the artists that were there! Bruce Wheeler (Festival Director) and his family really outdo themselves every year! Bruce did a fantastic job of selecting some great music and that’s why Show #78 is called “Bruce’s Blues”!
Well, we started off the show with Magic Slim & The Teardrops with Let Me Love You!
Following Magic, we’ll hear from Mikey Junior, Car Troubles; Eden Brent, Mississippi Flatland Blues; Delta Highway, The Devil Had A Woman; Saffire - Uppity Blues Women, Going Down to the River; Moreland And Arbuckle, Fishin’ Hole; The Soul of John Black, Black John; Ronnie Baker Brooks, See You Hurt No More; Elvin Bishop w/ John Nemeth, Who’s the Fool; David Jacobs-Strain, Kokomo Blues; John Nemeth, Love Me Tonight; Bobby Rush, Flashback; and wrapping up with the IBC Albert King Guitar Award winning J P Soars playing Low Dirty Deal!
A special thanks to all the independent artists, the signed artists, the promoters, and the record labels for the ongoing support in the BluzNdaBlood Show, your first stop for the best in the blues!
Also special thanks to Michael Allen, from the Crossroads Blues Gallery for his ongoing support in allowing me to use his incredible artwork on my show and web sites!
This show’s artwork is courtesy of Daniel Baird, who now owns a sign making business. He created the banner that was presented to Bruce and also is used for this show! Check out the details in the banner! There’s a great panoramic view of the Wheela venue!
Be sure to swing by the BluzNdaBlood home page! There are hyperlinks to all the great music that you hear on my show!
Remember to send in your favorite blues artists that you would like me to play on an upcoming “By Request” show! I need your help!
Until next time, this is Dave Harrison, reminding you to keep the blues alive and keep the blues in the blood!
