This Weekend: Blues Reinventions with C.C. Rider
Hour 1: Blues Reinventions with C.C. Rider
C.C. Rider invites you to ponder some reinventions–folks who put a new spin on old tunes–Keb Mo, Bonnie Raitt, Guy Davis, Rory Block, Pokey LaFarge, Rhiannon Giddens, the Carolina Chocolate Drops. And, lest we forget, some of the originals who made the reinventing possible: Mississippi Fred McDowell, Blind WIlie McTell, Skip James, and Gus Cannon’s Jug Stompers. New music as well from one of the original roots reinventors, David Bromberg.
Hour 2: Selwyn Birchwood
Tampa, Florida’s own Selwyn Birchwood joins Elwood to play songs from his latest release, DON’T CALL NO AMBULANCE. He joins Elwood to talk about that, and about life leading up to winning the Albert King Award for Guitarist of the Year. Ears will be bent for his influences, Jimi Hendrix, Louis Walker, and Buddy Guy. Plus some fellow Florida musicians: The Tedeschi Trucks Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and JJ Grey.
