Goooooood Morning from The Mermaid Lounge where we give you a totally bluesy programming Tuesday. Did I say that right? Well, no matter.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble Live at Carnegie Hall, New York, October 4, 1984 NEW!
We kick off today’s festivities with a new-to-the-lounge live SRV and Double Trouble concert from Carnegie Hall. There isn’t much I can say about Stevie Ray Vaughan that hasn’t already been said, so I’ll let him speak for himself through his music.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Rising Sons featuring Taj Mahal & Ry Cooder
Of course, there were more musicians in this band. You can see the complete list if you go back to Sunday’s entry. This band’s life may have been short-lived, but it spawned two of the most musically creative acts in popular music history, in my humble opinion.
7:00 p.m. Tedeschi-Trucks Band Live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison, Colorado, August 30, 2012
We close out the day’s programming with one sweet band. I don’t know about their marriage, but this is a musical marriage made in heaven and it’s a great concert.
If you like the blues, Tuesday is your day. Tune us in. We have a ton of people on this morning and you should join the pack. It’s not only commercial-free, but it’s totally free.
