Buddy Guy

This week's blues show, 11pm Saturday night, May 5th will feature a variety of musicians including Chris Stapleton and Deep Purple.  The first set begins with Alabama Mike from a compilation release in honor of Howlin' Wolf.  This tune's followed by Howlin' Wolf, R.L. Burnside, and The Medicine Men with Lance Boyd who'll be performing Friday, May 11th on the Cincinnati Guitar Festival stage at the Madison Theater in Covington.  Brian O'Donnell previews the event with Bob Nave in an interview that'll air on VXU's "Around Cincinnati" program Sunday night, May 6th at 7pm.

Cincinnati's a popular stop for many nationally known blues artists, and we also are lucky to have so many talented musicians making Cincinnati their home.  So, I thought it'd be fun on this blues show, Saturday night, April 7th at 11pm, to spotlight musicians who have gigs booked here.

The first set begins with blues legend Buddy Guy followed by Walter Trout, Sonny Moorman who has an incredibly busy schedule, and Noah Hunt who's coming to the Ludlow Garage with Jason Dennie.

Mavis Staples is playing Memorial Hall and will probably sell out her April 20th show.  Also heard in the second set of The Blues are the Blind Boys of Alabama, Keb'Mo, and Taj Mahal.  And, the show ends with Todd Rundgren, Peter Frampton, and Steely Dan.
