This Weekend on Elwood’s BluesMobile: Susan Tedeschi & Derek Trucks
Hour 1: Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks
Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks join Elwood to spin some tunes from their great new release LET ME GET BY. They share the joys of being a couple fronting what is more or less a big family- a 12 piece band. Plus music from mentors and inspirations, Buddy Guy and Mahalia Jackson. And! Music from some other married folks: Ike and Tina Turner, Fleetwood Mac, and The White Stripes. And Elwood closes the show with music from Chicago bus driver turned old school Chicago blues player, Toronzo Cannon.
Hour 2: The Roots of Rock
When a song is great, people want to hear it. And musicians want to play it. And then what happens? The song changes. The Blues Brothers tackle Sam and Dave’s “Soul Man.” Cream goes after Robert Johnson’s “Crossroads.” We will hear what happens when Led Zeppelin meets Muddy Waters, the Stones meet Slim Harpo, and Jack White gets all over Little Willie John. And more!
