Peter Frampton

This week on The Blues, which'll air at 11pm on Saturday, March 21st, the show begins with a song written by Jimmy Smith "Bayou" and is played by the great Joey DeFrancesco.  This is followed by Ruth Brown with a recording she did in 1989, "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out" with Grady Tate on drums and altoist Hank Crawford. 

Music legend and former Cincinnati resident Peter Frampton is coming back to town for a concert appearance at the Horseshoe Casino on June 22.

After a triumphant appearance with the Cincinnati Ballet in April, guitar virtuoso and former Cincinnatian Peter Frampton is coming back to town with a few of his friends: BB King and Sonny Landreth. They’ll be in concert at the PNC Pavilion on August 14 with a show called Frampton’s Guitar Circus Tour, and he spends a few minutes with Brian O’Donnell to talk about the music and these guitar legends.

Music great Peter Frampton is entering new territory – ballet! His music will be the focus of the next performances of the Cincinnati Ballet on April 26 and 27.
