Legendary guitarist Jimmie Vaughan, along with blues vocalist Lou Ann Barton, will head a power-packed musical lineup for the 9th annual T-Bone Walker Blues Fest in Longview, Texas, on 9/12-13. The 2-day event features Jimmie Vaughan & his band along with Tony Joe White, Eddie “The Chief” Clearwater, Lurrie Bell Chicago Blues Band, and many others. Tickets are available on the festival website.
On this edition of The Blues, you'll hear from New Orleans legendary pianist Ronnie Kole who has a lively persona on stage. You'll also hear one of my favorites, the Monty Alexander Trio at Montreux in 1976 with Jeff Hamilton on drums and bassist John Clayton, "Nite Mist Blues." Plus Ken Nordine, Charlie Musselwhite and Gov't Mule.
This is a fun show with legendary blues musicians like John Mayall, BB King & Eric Clapton, and Bonnie Raitt. You'll also hear some favorites like George Thorogood & the Destroyers, Galactic from New Orleans, and Louis Armstrong.
This show starts off with a set which includes songs by Aaron Neville, John Sinclair and Little Milton who passed away in 2005. You'll also hear later in the program music by Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, Hank Crawford and Etta James. Plus one of my favorite vocalists...Jonelle Mosser from Nashville.
