This is your day, Blues Lovers! All of our programmed music time today is devoted to da blues. We’re cooking with gas today as we kick it all off with some brand new ‘live’ music from the premier power blues band, Tedeschi Trucks.
Here’s your Tuesday Bluesday programming:
11:00 a.m. Tedeschi Trucks Band Live at The Fox Theatre, Oakland, CA, September 8th & 9th, 2016 NEW!
The premier big, bad blues-rock sound of this fabulous band is unbeatable, led by the best blues guitarist on the planet in Derek Trucks and blues singer and guitarist Susan Tedeschi. Today we’ve got them live from the Fox Theatre in Oakland.
3:00 p.m. Album of The Week: I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama by Janis Joplin
At mid-afternoon it’s the second airing of the only solo album released by Janis Joplin in her lifetime. This was recorded right after she left Big Brother & The Holding Company. She invited the Kozmic Blues Band to back her on the album and Janis saddled up and rode with them for a while.
7:00 p.m. In The Spotlight: The Music of Marcia Ball
Marcia Ball is a blues singer, songwriter and pianist extraordinaire who was born in Orange, Texas and raised in Vinton, Louisiana. USA Today described Marcia Ball’s music as being “where Texas stomp-rock and Louisiana swamp-blues meet.” She has been at this for fifty years and is still going strong! You can learn all about Marcia Ball here on her website.
