More unusual (blues) suspects and part two of Johnny Winter’s Progressive Blues Experiment
Henry Cook and I hope you will join us this Saturday night, February 18th, at 9:00 as we unleash another exciting episode of Time For The Blues!
This week we’re going to feature more Unusual Suspects – acts that normally are not known as blues artists exploring the blues – and we’ve got some real good ones for you this week. I don’t want to give away all of the surprises, so you’ll want to tune in to hear what we’ve got.
After that, it’s part two of Johnny Winter’s Progressive Blues Experiment. There is so much to cover with this great group that we had to come back and revisit some more of this amazing music. With a power trio that consisted of Winter, Tommy Shannon on bass, and John “Red” Turner on drums, the group tore through a mix of originals and covers and set the table for future groups like ZZ Top.
You don’t want to miss this experiment!
Plus we’ve got a couple of sides from George “Harmonica” Smith and new material from Jimi “Primetime” Smith and our pal Bob Corritore as well as one from Mississippi Macdonald.
All in all, it’s a great show and we would love to have you join us for the fun if you care to join us at 9:00 this Saturday night. That’s February 4th, and you can find us on one of these great VPM Stations: 89.1 WCNV, Heathsville; 90.1 WMVE, Chase City; and the flagships, 93.1 and 107.3 VPM-Music and 88.9 HD2, Richmond, and online at VPM.org where it’s always Time For The Blues!
