Baker’s Dozen of Blues: November 14, 2016




From Montreal Canada Dawn Tyler Watson has been thrilling us for several years as a vocalist. My first exposure was when she was with Paul Deslauriers with a CD called ‘En Duo‘ – it is an amazing acoustic album that features her voice and his guitar playing, well worth finding.

But this week it is her ‘Jawbreaker‘ CD that sits atop our chart, congrats to Dawn, to Brian Slack and others who have worked so hard to bring her to the light. Oh BTW you will get to see her at the Blues Foundation’s IBC in Memphis in early 2017.

We shook up the chart this week and this has allowed us to bring some exciting music to the forefront here, hoping y’all dig it as much as we dig bringing it to you. With four new additions Teresa James, Lex Grey, Tas Cru & The Fabulous Thunderbirds I think there will be some exciting times ahead for us and you – our listeners – as we close out the year.

Our Amuse Bouche features November birthdays, not all of them but some good folks who are here to enjoy them and enjoy getting wished happy birthday from us all.
