Greetings From Your Editor...

Happy Birthday Muddy Waters...

April 4th, 2013 marks the 100th birthday of the great McKinley Morganfield aka Muddy Waters. I discovered a cool video that begins with him sharing a story about his life. It proceeds into amazing, live footage of him performing some of his great and iconic music that continues to move and inspire generations. Get your Muddy fix with "Video of Tne Week in this issue.

 

Yes, long live the King Bee! 

 

Holy cow... there's so much going on from Arkansa to Finland to Detroit to Switzerland and other groovy points in between, that you're going to have to just checkout this issue closely to plan your blues calendar! 

 

Go get your dang mojo working! You won't regret it!

 

Your ever-grateful editor... Michele Lundeen

 

Correction: Last week the headine for Elwood's BluesMobile should have said Roots & Eric Clapton.

Attention Blues Festival Promoters: RAISE THE ROOF

Here is a unique opportunity for you to get yourself and your festival attendees involved with the exciting Blues Foundation's RAISE THE ROOF: Campaign for the Blues Hall of Fame

 

The Blues Hall of Fame pays tribute to the greatest of the genre and educates new people about the genre. The Blues Foundation has been inducting people into the Blues Hall of Fame for years; it was a simple evening with web presence. Nothing permanent. But now we need physical presence.

 

We are working with the Blues Foundation and a myriad of artists and organizations to spread the word about this noble cause. Because we are right in the middle of preparing for festival season, this is the perfect time for you to get involved as well and it requires just a small amount of effort.

 

Here is a link with more details about the Blues Hall of Fame campaign. Our goal is to help raise awareness (this is where you come in) in order to raise funds to reach the goal of 3.5 million. We know you are busy with your event but here are some easy, quick and free ways you can get the word out about this worthwhile campaign.

 

What you can do: Add Blues Hall of Fame logo to your website

- Add BHF banner ad to your website - Include BHF ad in your Program

- MC announcements from stage - Pass out brochure to your attendees

 

Please make a commitment to this cause and let’s use the momentum of the festival season to create awareness! How does someone donate? Donate online. Call me if you want to share ideas or to get an ad for your website or program.

 

Best, Kaati / BLUES FESTIVAL GUIDE

CD & DVD Releases

Southern Hospiltality :: EASY LIVIN'

Easy Livin', Southern Hospitality’s debut for Blind Pig is getting a big buzz... "A compelling mixture of Southern roots music that is equal parts gut-wrenching blues, New Orleans jazz and funk, hot-buttered soul and Jerry Lee Lewis-style piano boogie ... "Easy Livin'" is a fitting soundtrack for everything good about the South,"  says the Albany Herald.

 

Southern Hospitality is comprised of lap steel guitar master Damon Fowler, guitarist extraordinaire JP Soars, and keyboard wizard Victor Wainwright. With echoes of Muscle Shoals and Macon, these dynamic young sons of Dixie draw on their rich heritage of Southern soul, blues, and rock music to create a fresh translation of Americana and Southern roots music with a modern sensibility. The three artists are musician's musicians, each bringing his unique style and skill set to the mix. Together their mutual chemistry, high energy and tuneful talents create a cohesive, vibrant vision of original American roots music.

 

Easy Livin' was produced by Tab Benoit, winner of three Blues Music Awards this year, including the prestigious "B.B. King Entertainer of the Year." Says Tab, “Damon, Victor, and JP are the future of roots music."

Lisa Biales :: SINGING IN MY SOUL

Ohio-based Singer/songwriter Lisa Biales new CD, Singing in My Soul, will be released April 16 on Big Song Music. Lisa is backed on the new CD by Cincinnati-based pianist Ricky Nye (who also produced the album) and the Paris Blues Band (and yes, they really are from France), which includes Thibaut Chopin on upright bass, Anthony Stelmaszack on guitar and Simon “Shuffle” Boyer on drums.

 

The 10 cuts on Singing in My Soul reflect Lisa’s diverse musical tastes, as she covers everything from gospel (Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s “Strange Things Happening Every Day” and the title track); blues (Mississippi John Hurt’s “Let the Mermaids Flirt with Me,” Sippie Wallace’s “You Got to Know How” and W. C. Handy’s “Careless Love”); old time pop (Blu Lu Barker’s “A Little Bird Told Me,” Peggy Lee’s “Waiting for the Train to Come In”); and even a beautiful slow ballad version of the doo-wop classic, “I Only Have Eyes for You”. Lisa’s lone original song on the album, “MagicGarden,” a tune she wrote in a playful finger-style guitar framework, fits in perfectly amongst the rest of the repertoire. Of special note is her wondrous take of “Write Me in Care of the Blues,” a song she found doing research for the play “Always, Patsy Cline,” in which Biales was cast in the leading role for the local production.

INAUGURAL PARKFEST BLUES FESTIVAL COMING MAY 11


The River City Blues Society of Virginia is proud to announce the inaugural ParkFest Blues Festival on May 11, 2013, at Pocahontas State Park in Chesterfield County, Virginia. 

 

The event will kickoff with local blues bands, Andrew Alli & Last Night Blues Band (bottom) and the Mike Lucci Band (below lt). The music will continue with a regional favorite, Mikey Jr. (below rt), from Philadelphia, PA, playing a wicked harmonica. South Florida native, Albert Castiglia (lt) and his band will take the stage playing hot guitar and timely blues lyrics. The evening will end with Washington area favorite and Blues Music Award winner, The Nighthawks (top).

 

The festival will not only showcase the blues music of local, regional and national artists, but also the gem that is Virginia’s largest state park, Pocahontas State Park, in Chesterfield County. The festival is set in the Heritage Amphitheater where there is not a bad seat in the house as the stage is elevated. There is ample parking, plenty of shade. The amphitheater has seating and a grassy slope where spectators can set up chairs and blankets.

 

An interactive exhibit on loan from the Library of Virginia regarding blues music and its roots in American and Virginia music will be on site. This live exhibit will also offer acoustic blues during the stage breaks with opportunities for attending musicians. There will also be a Vendor Park with food and beverages.

 

RCBS also announces that profits raised will benefit the Special Olympics of Virginia. SOVA is a sports organization that has celebrated the spirit, courage and determination of children and adult athletes with mental disabilities.

 

The River City Blues Society is a 501(c)3 dedicated to the preservation and to the promotion of blues music in Central Virginia. More information and tickets for ParkFest Blues Festival can be found at www.parkfestblues.com.

PERFORMERS SPOTLIGHT:

RICK ESTRIN AND THE NIGHTCATS


 

Rick Estrin, according to The San Francisco Chronicle, "is an amazing harmonica player, a soulful lead vocalist and a brilliant songwriter." The award-winning musician, another critic said, "sounds like Little Walter playing and singing Leiber and Stoller." Along with The Nightcats- jaw-dropping guitarist Chris "Kid" Andersen (pictured below rt w-Estrin), singing drummer (who plays standing up) J. Hansen and dynamic multi-instrumentalist Lorenzo Farrell (electric and acoustic bass, organ and piano) - Rick Estrin serves up fresh and modern original blues injected with a solid dose of gritty roadhouse rock 'n' roll.

APRIL 20-21 ROD PIAZZA AND THE MIGHTY FLYERS HEADLINE

HIGH DESERT MUSIC FESTIVAL & BBQ SHOWDOWN

Rod Piazza and the Mighty Flyers, known for their high energy blend of jump, West Coast and Chicago blues, will headline the High Desert Music Festival and BBQ Showdown, April 20-21, 2013 at the Victorville Fairgrounds, Victorville, CA.

 

The lineup includes performances by Grammy nominated bluesman, Ray Brooks (below lt); blues stylings by Oakland’s renowned Caravan of All Stars and an appearance by the toe-stomping Blue Henrys (below rt). The two day - two stage event also features the sounds of crowd favorites Wumbloozo (bottom rt) and the music of Big Papa and the TCB. Award winning youth ensembles Detour 91 and the Chase Walker Band are also among the main stage acts.

 

 

Brooks, a Texas blues man, worked with blues legends Floyd Dixon, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown and Freddie King. He earned a Grammy nomination for “Walk Out Like A Lady.”

 

Piazza is a tried-and-true blues veteran with credentials that are second to none. His numerous awards, recordings and appearances have set the standards for excellence. From his first recordings as a leader in 1967 fronting The Dirty Blues Band, through his multiple W.C. Handy Awards with his current band The Mighty Flyers, his countless performances both live and in the studio, have set a standard for harmonica virtuosity.

 


The Caravan (above) is the Bay Area’s powerhouse blues revue who has performed at the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival, the Monterey Bay Blues Festival and a command performance for President Bill Clinton.

 

The blues masters join a world class BBQ competition approved by the Kansas City BBQ Society. Tributes to music rooted in the blues include performances by old school greats, Tierra, and funk legends Lakeside and the 5 Tempting Men with their tribute to Motown and the Temptations.

AWARD-WINNING FILM AND MUSIC PRODUCERS SET TO LAUNCH FIRST BLUES MUSIC REALITY SHOW THIS FALL


(CLARKSDALE, MS) – The creators of the award-winning documentaries “M For Mississippi” and “We Juke Up in Here” return in 2013 with “Moonshine & Mojo Hands,” a new weekly web-TV series dedicated to the rude, rowdy – and often ridiculous – world of Mississippi blues. The show follows hosts Roger Stolle and Jeff Konkel as they travel the Delta’s back roads in search of juke joints, house parties, barbecue, moonshine and – of course – the men and women who keep this uniquely American music alive in the land of its birth.

 

The first season of the show will consist of 10 episodes streaming for free online this fall. Each 12-minute episode will take viewers on a wild ride through the Mississippi Delta and Hill Country to meet the region's most fascinating characters in truly unforgettable settings.

 

“There’s truly no place else on Earth quite like Mississippi,” Konkel said. “We can’t wait to introduce viewers to all of the great music, food, culture and characters that the state has to offer.”

 

The show’s producers are currently raising funds through Kickstarter. Marketing sponsorship opportunities also are available for interested individuals and organizations by e-mailing Roger Stolle at roger@cathead.biz or Jeff Konkel at jeff@brokeandhungryrecords.com.

 


Above Lt-Rt: Roger Stolle, Super Chikan and Jeff Konkel. “We’ve been really overwhelmed by the excitement and interest that the project has already generated,” Stolle said. “With the support of sponsors and fans, we’re confident we can create a show that will help the world understand what makes Mississippi such a weird and wonderful place.”

 

“Moonshine & Mojo Hands” is a joint production of Cat Head Delta Blues & Folk Art and Broke & Hungry Records in partnership with Tangent Mind, LLC and Lou Bopp.

JOE WALSH & ERIC CLAPTON

 

From the James Gang, to the Eagles, to his own solo work, Joe Walsh has always shown a healthy streak of not taking himself too seriously. But he can sure tear it up when he feels like it. Joe's back, with his first solo album in twenty years. Where has he been? What’s he up to?

 

Then, in the second hour of the program…starting in the Yardbirds, then on to John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek and the Dominoes, and a mind-boggling solo career, few players have struck more notes, or done more for the blues, than Eric Clapton.

 

Joe Walsh PLUS part two of Elwood's birthday tribute to Eric Clapton. Next time, in The BluesMobile.
