TOO SLIM & TAILDRAGGERS #1
PA BLUES FEST AMUSE BOUCHE – EARLY START
EPIC GREENWOOD FESTIVAL OF DISCOVERY & BLUESCRUISE
Our visit to the Greenwood, SC Festival of Discovery & BBQ & Blues event was epic. Yes indeed, four days of free blues music – from Slam Allen, Vanessa Collier, Bruce Katz, JP Soars, Robert ‘Top’ Thomas, Biscuit Miller & The Mix and many more was and is always an outstanding chance to hear blues and be part of a community’s effort to promote both BBQ competitions and the music we love. Thank you Greenwood, SC.
A special shout out to Gary ‘Shrimp City Slim’ Erwin for doing so much to keep the blues alive n well. Fans may not know his name but the artists sure do. Put this on yo’ calendars for next year.
Congrats to Too Slim & The Tail Draggers as ‘Blood Moon’ makes it to #1 on the BDOB chart. A sterling release that has Slim shining like a full moon over the water with his song writing and guitar playing never better.
Our new debut this week is from Tinsley Ellis. Always exciting to hear his music, and this one is no slouch, be sure to get your ears around this release.
There is so much going on these last few weeks, of note:
We are off to Nashville to record more sit down’s with artists for our Music City Blues Kitchen radio show – sponsored by The Galaxie Agency.
Speaking of the show we have a new one starting TODAY – MONDAY July 11 – we sit down with Ruth Hurricane Lemaster. Be sure to check it out.
We want to extend a welcome to The Lucky Losers, Cathy Lemons & Phil Berkowitz our latest Tier1 Supporters. Look for their hot brand spank new release, In Any Town all over the internet, and if they in your neighborhood get out there and support them.
