It’s another Tuesday Bluesday in The Mermaid Lounge and we’ve got a great line-up in store for you sprinkled in with all that Open Stream.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday line-up:
11:00 a.m. The Allman Brothers Band with Eric Clapton, Live at The Beacon Theatre, New York, March 19, 2009
Does it get any better than this? We’re not quite sure about that. We have what I consider to be the best damned Southern rock/blues band on stage with one of the greatest guitarists on the planet. I would have loved to be in attendance. This is the next best thing.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Linda Ronstadt, The Stone Poneys & Friends, Volume III
From the blues to a bit of folk interlude here. The final album from Linda Ronstadt & The Stone Poneys was released in 1968. The following year, she would launch her solo career.
7:00 p.m. The Best of Louisiana Blues, Volume Two: Various Artists
Louisiana has contributed mightily to the history of blues music with Dr. John, Ferdinand “Jelly Roll” Morton, Slim Harpo, Snooks Eaglin, Marcia Ball, Irma Thomas, Professor Longhair, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown and many more. You can hear them here this evening.
Step out of your comfort zone and give us a shot. Hell, this is a labor of musical love. We sure ain’t makin’ money doing this, I promise. And you won’t have to give us a credit card number or provide any personal information.
