The Blues: 1/11/14 show

Jan 12, 2014

Cincinnati's music scene is rich with talented musicians many of whom will be highlighted on this show.  You'll hear Noah Hunt performing with Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and the Bluebirds recorded at their old Sunday evening gig at Allyn's Cafe in Columbia Tusculum.  There's a song by the Goshorn Brothers and another by the Sacred music from Big Joe Duskin, Greg Schaber, and the Blues Merchants.  It's a local archival edition of the Blues!

Tommy Castro's bringing his hot blues to the Redmoor in Mt. Lookout Square on Tuesday, February 11th, and he'll probably be performing music from his new cd, "The Devil You Know,"

on Alligator Records.
