THE NEW COVER REVEALED AND TOP NOTCH BLUES COMES TO STOCKTON
 
Stockton, Ca.
 
The 2011 Blues Festival Guide cover is a wonderful photo of none other than Blues Music Award Nominee; John Nemeth.  The 2011 Blues Festival Guide is now available!  The photo was taken at Doheny Blues Festival in California.

Ronnie Lozano's Pacific Street Grill in Stockton has turned up the heat in his kitchen and in the staging room.  Ronnie's been bringing Blues to Stockton for 7 years and has recently hired more seasoned, touring artists to play his small, but accommodating Bar & Grill.  He's remodeled and opened up the whole place so that it seems larger than it really is.  Walking through the establishment - there's hardly a bad seat in the house for viewing the stage and there isn't a bad seat for listening.  There's a great "bounce" to the room as the music echoes throughout.  He said, "The economy has really taken a toll on the amount of blues fans, but the artists and clubs have to work together in order for everyone to succeed."

Last Friday Ronnie hosted Blues Music Award Nominee and the artist on the cover of the Blues Festival Guide for this year - Mr John Nemeth.  When asked what his most exciting moment this year so far was - John said, "Up until last week it was getting the cover of the Blues Festival Guide. It's great because it reaches so many people."  When asked what his next goal was John stated, "Just to make more good music."  I couldn't help myself and I asked what happened last week.  "We took my little girl to Sears for her first professional pictures and she was all smiles, she wore an outfit that my mom made for her."  He was a beaming, proud papa.
 
Thank you for supporting live music!

YANK RACHELL : : BLUES MANDOLIN MAN
Yank Rachell began his recording career in the late 1920's.  Through the ensuring decades, he established himself as the finest and most revered mandolinist the blues ever produced, performing regularly with Sleepy John Estes and Sonny Boy Willaimson, among many others.  Rachell drifted away from the music scene in the '40s, but resumed performing during the folk-blues revival of the late '60s and early '70s. These sessions from 1986, where Yank is joined for the first time by a rhythm section (his accustomed way of playing for many years), find Yank in fine form, his voice and instrumental skills still strong and compelling.  Downbeat magazine called the LP "a fun, effective presentation of old-timey music in a fresh, contemporary setting."

TRACY NELSON : : VICTIM OF THE BLUES
With Victim of the Blues, Tracy's 26th album in just over five decades, she has circled fully, back to the original music from South Side Chicago that mesmerized her teenaged mind in the mid-1960s.
 
The new album, Victim of the Blues, is a hand-picked collection of songs, most written by Nelson's early heroes: Muddy Waters (One More Mile), Jimmy Reed (Shoot Him), Percy Mayfield (Stranger in My Own Hometown), Lightning Hopkins (Feel So Bad), Joe Tex (The Love You Save) and Howlin' Wolf (Howlin' for My Baby). She has chosen 11 songs of the day, ones that were spilling out of AM radios from second-story apartments, rolled-down car windows, and live from darkened clubs with exotic names like El Macambo.
In late July, 2010, Nelson was featured on NPR's Weekend Edition, a little more than a month after the tragic fire that took the 100+ year old farmhouse she shared with longtime partner Mike Dysinger. She was just beginning to deal with the aftermath of losing her home and many of her personal belongings. ''The firemen told us they could save one room - we had to decide - we said 'the studio.''' This album, Victim of the Blues, is the album that miraculously survived the fire. And that is the reason that the first people Nelson thanks in this album's notes are the Burns, Tennessee Volunteer Fire Department.
 
To date, there have been several benefits across the country to assist the two in rebuilding their farmhouse on the land they love. Seeing as how her first Grammy nomination was for After the Fire Is Gone, with Willie Nelson, she would say drolly, ''It seemed like the perfect thing to call these events.''
Nelson had titled this album before the fire, so the irony is not missed on her. Victim of the Blues is as deeply felt as anything she she has recorded in her exceptional career. She is a soul survivor.

    WARM BREEZE AND COOL JAZZ
    Photo by Tim Isbell
     
     
     
    LONG BEACH -- More than 5,000 people and 80 vendors filled the Gulf Park campus of the University of South Mississippi on Saturday for a day of relaxed jazz music under the oaks.
     
    The university hosted its third annual Jazz and Blues Festival, which featured music from the Rochelle Harper Band, the Southern Miss Faculty Jazz Quintet, the Jerry Ball Jazz and Blues Quintet, and Jason Ricci.
     
    “We look at it as a great asset to the community and a way to bring people to the campus and let them know that USM is still open and still on the Coast,” said USM Dean of Student Services Tom Lansford.
     
    “We see local vendors coming out to show their wares and, being right on the beach, people can look out and see the view while they enjoy great music and great art.”
     
    Lansford said at one point during the concert, one of the music acts was running late due to an emergency and he pulled a man out of the audience to play on stage. Rusty Lemon then entertained the crowd for 45 minutes playing guitar until the band arrived to take the stage.
     
    “It is a very beautiful venue,” said musician Rochelle Harper. “I think it’s great the school is doing this. It’s always nice to do stuff for your students and the community. Hopefully, these are bands that the students wanted to see.”

    ROUND BARN BLUES SET TO FILL THE AIR
     
    Northeast Missouri’s renovated hay storage and livestock shelter is set to transform into a music house of blues with this weekend’s installment of the bi-annual Round Barn Blues Festival.
     
    Featuring modern blues guitarist and singer Chris Beard, harmonica player Rockin’ Jake with his hybrid swamp funk and blues sound and local group Deadwood, the festival will raise funds for the continued renovation and restoration of the nearly 100-year-old barn.
     
    Located two miles east of US 63 on Route P, the Round Barn Blues Festival gates open at 3 p.m. April 30 and the music starts at 4 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the event.
     
    Beard is a self-described musician with blues in his DNA. His connection to the blues was fostered and forged by his father Joe Beard, also a blues guitarist.

    BUSINESSES CELEBRATE IN BESSEMER, ALABAMA BLUES FESTIVAL
    Bessemer to spruce up store fronts for festival.
     
     
    Bessemer business leaders say this weekend's barbecue and blues festival to be held downtown, combined with better relationships with the new mayor, are helping improve the image of the city.
     
    Bob Sykes BBQ owner Van Sykes said he moved his Bob Sykes BBQ & Blues Festival, to be held from noon until 11 p.m. Saturday at DeBardeleben Park, from Tannehill State Park to downtown Bessemer in large part because of confidence in Mayor Kenneth Gulley, elected last fall.

    "In the past, a lot of us in the business community felt unappreciated by city hall," Said Sykes, whose family has operated Bob Sykes BBQ downtown for half a century. "With the new leadership under Mayor Gulley, it feels like a new day in Bessemer. Our hope is that this blues festival will help showcase the positive side in Bessemer."

    OLD BLUES EYE: A PHOTOGRAPHER'S PERSPECTIVE
    April 29th 2011
     
    Even though it's festival season we can still go to clubs to see folks who are jsut starting out, which leads me to my next question.  Let's see what "Old Blues Eye" has to say.
     
    This week Rocky Allen 
    Q: Of all of the artists there are to shoot, which do you prefer - famous or amateur?
     
    A:
    I like to capture the passion of the performer!   I'm like the hunter who hides in the bushes waiting for his prey to walk by.  I wait for the performer to bare a piece of his heart and when he does...I capture it!   It's all about the passion of the performance for me.  You can get a passionate performance from anyone who believes in what they're doing.  Consider this picture of my friend Roland Hutcherson.  Like so many thousands of ultra-talented musicians he is not at all famous, but he can deliver such a moving performance that you actually believe what he's saying is true!  His guitar bears witness to each emotion-packed story that he tells.  His talent and delivery are second to none.  With that said, if they are famous or not so famous, I put the same energy into photographing them.  I believe music is a gift from God, and musicians are messengers of that gift.

     
    NEW ORLEANS JAZZ AND HERITAGE FESTIVAL GUIDE 2011
     
    Robert Plant
     
    The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is an embarrassment of riches for music lovers, touching not just upon jazz music, but also lots of R&B, blues, rock, gospel, world music, hip-hop, and cajun/zydeco. So how can an oldies fan best spend his time at the 2011 "Fest"? Here's a handy day-by-day guide from yours truly, who's been going since he was a child. Remember to come back for next week's schedule!

    BOOS' FEST FOR GRACE JONES AT BLUES FESTIVAL IN BYRON BAY, AUS.

    (AU)  THE annual Bluesfest descended into more of a "boos" fest on Saturday night ... at least when it came to Amazing Grace Jones.
    Serially late to the stage, the 62-year-old music maverick kept fans waiting nearly an hour for her headline performance at the Byron Bay shindig, and her 1981 hit Nightclubbing was almost drowned out by a chorus of contempt when she finally made a dramatic entrance at 10.35pm.
     
    She was due on at 9.45pm.
     
    "There is such a thing as Jamaican time," she said recently.

    BURNLEY BLUES FESTIVAL HAILED A SUCCESS
     
    (UK) THE bright young stars of the blues made a bank holiday bee-line for Burnley and made Saturday night one to remember.
     
    The Burnley blues festival may be a much pared down version of what it used to be but the quality and enjoyment factor was higher than ever.
     
    Blues singer Bernard Allison on stage in Burnley
     
    Just four acts took to the Mechanics main stage, each carefully selected to bring something different to the party – and all representing the future of the blues.
     
    Opening the event was Chantel McGregor, something of a blues prodigy whose powerhouse set combined touches of immense subtlety with extraordinary technique – boy can this girl play a guitar.
     
    Aynsley Lister brought together a wonderfully balanced set spanning rock, blues and even a little country thrown in for good measure.

    FREE SPRING FESTIVALS POP UP ACROSS AREA
     
    A great thing about spring is that there are lots of wonderful free weekend festivals all around Middle Tennessee.
     
    One of the best is the Downtown Franklin Main Street Festival on Saturday and Sunday, featuring more than 200 artisans and crafters, three stages (with music including Dixieland, blues, bluegrass, swing, ’60s music, big band and more), two carnivals and an international food court. Plus, a traveling John Lennon exhibit will be featured starting Friday and continuing through the weekend.
     
    Festival hours are 10 a.m-7 p.m. Saturday, with the Fourth Avenue Street Dance continuing until 10 p.m., and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
