This Weekend On The BluesMobile Radio Hour
December 7-8: Monkey Junk
Elwood is tickled to bring you new music from the Canadian blues power trio, Monkey Junk. And some other power trios you might know, like the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, and ZZ Top. ALL FREQUENCIES is the name of Monkey Junk’s new CD. It will be played, along with the Neville Brothers, Hound Dog Taylor, and new music from the amazing deep roots player, Little G. Weevil.
Harrison Kennedy used to front the Detroit funk supergroup Chairmen of the Board. Then he went back to Canada, and his own deep blues roots. Today he brings his great voice, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica to a new CD of acoustic music, Soulscape. Elwood spins it and talks with Harrison. And there’s some other acoustic blues masters for you: Taj Mahal, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Otis Taylor, and Yank Rachell. Also: Billie Holiday, BB King, and new music from Oakland, California’s Quinn DeVeaux and the Blue Beat Revue.
