Good Morning, Bluesologists! We have some great Tuesday Bluesday material for you today; the only diversion will be a short trip to the Land of Psychedelia with Donovan this afternoon.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday lineup:
11:00 a.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Taj Mahal
We here in the lounge consider Taj Mahal a national treasure. I’ll never forget my 2014 trip to New Orleans and the photo I took of a great Taj Mahal mural in the box office at the House of Blues. But I digress. Taj Mahal is not only a great bluesman, but he’s a multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar, piano, banjo, harmonica and a bunch of other instruments. He has been instrumental in expanding the scope of the blues by incorporating elements of world music in his creative efforts.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Sunshine Superman by Donovan
The only break in our blues programming comes mid-afternoon when we take a short trip to the land of psychedelic music with Donovan’s Sunshine Superman, our Album of The Week.
7:00 p.m. Rick Danko & Paul Butterfield Live at The Blue Note, Boulder, CO, December 13, 1979
After The Band was no more, Rick Danko teamed up with Paul Butterfield and toured as the blues-rock Danko/Butterfield Band. They went on the road together, and this performance is from The Blue Note in Boulder.
It’s always a busy day on Tuesday Bluesday, and this day is no exception! We’ve got people on from around the globe this morning as we gear up for some great blues programming. Join us. We say that metaphorically because there’s nothing to fill out (no personal information required) and no credit card asked for. If you don’t like us, you simply don’t come back. If you do like us, you continue to come back. Simple. Uncomplicated. No hidden fees. No surprises. That’s us.
