The Sonny Moorman Group won the 2014 Cincinnati Blues Challenge, earning them a place in this year’s International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Sonny Moorman visited our Corbett Studio to talk with Stuart Holman about the Memphis trip, other plans for the coming year, and perform his song “Let’s Work Together.”
During this one-hour special that'll air at 11pm on Saturday, January 24th, you'll hear an interview by Stuart Holman with Sonny Moorman, and then later in the show, you'll hear an interview I did with Kelly Richey in the Corbett Studio.
It’s almost time for the Winter Blues Fest from the folks at the Cincy Blues Society, and this year’s two-day event happens February 6-7 at The Phoenix in downtown Cincinnati. Joining Stuart Holman with details of the event and some of the performers is local musician and event organizer Mark Bubash.
