Guitar slinging music from Rory Gallagher and Joe Bonamassa

Rory Gallagher and Joe Bonamassa
The Best Of Rory Gallagher and Royal Tea

Henry and I hope you will join us this Saturday night, April 9th, at 9:00 for a special guitar slinging episode of Time For The Blues. We’ve got not one but two special segments dedicated to two of the best there ever were to strum a six string and we thing you’re really going to enjoy yourself.

First up is the one and only Rory Gallagher, the Irish blues and rock guitarist who unfortunately passed early at the age of 47. Gallagher had a prolific solo career but was best known for his amazing live performances and he achieved his highest status throughout Europe. We’ve snagged a copy of The Best Of Rory Gallagher and you’ll get a good sampling of just how good he was.

Among many of the best guitarists of today he is spoken of in revered tones and if he hadn’t been plagued with self-doubt and anxiety about his recordings, there’s no telling of just what heights he would have achieved.

The second guitar guru on the show takes a back seat to no one working today. Joe Bonamassa has been electrifying audiences on disc and in person all over the world as well as producing many other artists. We’re going to be sampling some sides from a recent disc, Royal Tea (get it, Royalty?) and he’s going to knock your socks off. That is, if you’re still wearing socks at 9:00 at night.

But we’re not stopping there. 2021 was Alligator’s 50th anniversary and we didn’t finish celebrating it, so we’re going to have a little throwdown with a couple of guests of honor, Charlie Musselwhite and William Clarke.

And there’s new stuff from A Band Called Sam, Dianne Davidson teaming up with Ruthie Foster, and Jeremiah Johnson who has a little rock and roll for the soul.

We’ll be glad to have your company if you care to join us at 9:00 this Saturday night. That’s April 9th, 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!
