New episode of Time For The Blues featuring Tinsley Ellis and John Németh
Time For The Blues is back like a bad penny but with some great music for your listening pleasure. Henry and I are glad to be back behind our respective microphones spinning records and telling some seriously bad jokes. It all takes place this Saturday night, March 19, beginning at 9:00 p.m. on VPM Music or stream live on vpm.org.
Last week, we dropped some Christone “Kingfish” Ingram on ya from his latest disc, 662, as well as some Curtis Salgado from his recent disc, Damage Control. This week we’ve got another six-string wizard, Tinsley Ellis from his most recent release, Devil May Care on Alligator! If you haven’t had a chance to explore Ellis’ work before, he is not only a prolific and high level guitar slinger, but he’s a certified road warrior who always seems to be out on tour.
Keep your eyes open to see if he’s coming to a venue near you. If he is, don’t wait, get those tickets early and go for an exciting evening of the blues!
That there is worth the price of admission alone, but we’ve got even more for you. We’ve got the sweet sweet soul blues of the one and only John Németh! He’s got a great new disc out on NOLA Blue/Memphis Grease titled Stronger Than Strong and we’ve got a nice sample from it just for you.
Németh is another one of those hard working artists that you are likely to fine somewhere out on the road and if you do, you don’t want to miss! So, be sure to catch him here to get a small sample of what you would see live.
There’s still more for you that you won’t want to miss. We’ve got Artur Menezes featuring Joe Bonamassa; the Greg Sover Band; and Ben Levin with an ode to one of the great cure-alls that was actually worse than what it purported to cure! There’s also piano wizard Veronica Lewis performing a classic Katie Webster tune that’ll rock you out; Skylar Rogers heading Back To Memphis; and just for grins, one last Curtis Salgado song that will do anything but make you slow down!
We’ll be glad to have your company if you care to join us at 9:00 this Saturday night. That’s March 19, and you can find us on one of these great VPM Stations: 89.1 WCVN, Northern Neck; 90.1 WMVE, Chase City; and the flagships, 93.1 and 107.3 VPM-Music, Richmond, where it’s always Time For The Blues!
