Fantastic Negrito Rides in the BluesMobile this weekend!
HOUR 1: Fantastic Negrito
Fantastic Negrito won NPR’S Tiny Desk Contest in 2015, creating an instant buzz around his unique funky rootsy playing. Elwood kicks things off with some other artists who knocked out their signature hits in one take: The Kingsmen, The Animals, and James Brown. Fantastic Negrito joins Elwood to talk about his exceptionally checkered career. Also, he gives a listen to Led Zeppelin, Credence Clearwater Revival, and R.L. Burnside. Closing things out, the Night Cat’s Rick Estrin rediscovered a soul singer from his youth and gave him a 21st Century showcase: Wee Willie Walker.
Hour 2: Rainy Day Blues
C.C. Rider takes us on a ride through some rainy day blues. Watch the windows streak with Jonny Lang, Ann Peebles, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Catch the thunder and lightning with the Tedeschi Trucks Band, Buddy Guy, and Jimi Hendrix. Plus, John Lee Hooker and Sister Rosetta Tharpe.
