A Baker’s Dozen of Blues: April 3, 2017

Michael Burks:
“I’m A Bluesman” #1

Released after Michael’s passing, this album is a dynamic look into where he was at musically and in his life. Nominated for a BMA in the historical category, we are looking forward to seeing Bobbi in Memphis in May.

Lurrie Bell & Marcia Ball (with Paul Oscher)
The Savannah Music Festival provided folks with a splendid, albeit short, look and listen to some very fine blues artists this weekend. Lurrie Bell threw down them good ol’ Chicago Blues and had former Blues411 Badass Bassist Melvyn Smith with him. Then Marcia Ball and band featuring Paul Oscher showed just how varied a tent the blues can be.

This Week in SC Blues
Back again to The Roasting Room & Listening Lounge for another Blues411 Concert Series show. This time it’s James Armstrong, always a dynamic show, and we are expecting a good house for the show. Then off to Kiawah Island for Blues By The Sea. Just one of the many that Gary Erwin a.k.a. Shrimp City Slim puts on through the state.

In Passing: Lonnie Brooks
Sad news this weekend, Lonnie Brooks has passed. Our sympathies go out to Wayne, Ronnie and family friends and fans at this time. We have used a glorious photo from Bob Sek here that captured the essence of Mr.Brooks life performances.
