This Weekend in The BluesMobile: Elvin Bishop

Elwood welcomes Elvin Bishop, who has been bringing us the blues for years, since emigrating to Chicago from Oklahoma back in the early 1960‘s.  He was part of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band (which shall be heard), before embarking on his own glorious solo career.  Tales of that career shall be told.  We will hear tracks from his latest, CAN’T EVEN DO WRONG RIGHT, with the good humor and funkability for which he is famous.  Also:  Little Walter, Big Joe Williams (Elvin has a tale about him), singer and songwriter Paul Thorn, and new music from saxophone diva Vanessa Collier.

Air Dates: October 25-26, 2014
