Updated: 26 min 52 sec ago
The 458th Roadhouse kicks off the holiday season with a fun mix of Christmas tracks and new blues music. Lurrie Bell, Ari Gorger & Igor Prado, Charlie Musselwhite, Downchild, and Sharon Lewis take us through the hour - the first hour of Christmas 2013 in The Roadhouse and another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.
Thanksgiving weekend in the US brings a Roadhouse Rewind from 2010: The 301st Roadhouse stays true to the tagline. Independent artists and a listener request make up the bulk of this edition. Darren Watson, Marshall Lawrence, Phantom Blues Band, Patrice Moncell, and Wes Jeans round out the show. It really is another hour of the finest blues you've never heard. I'll return on December 7 with a new Roadhouse.
This edition of The Roadhouse proves out the theory that it doesn’t really matter so much why you stand up from your chair and dance - just that you do. This week, the reasons to do that include James Cotton, Mighty Lester, Downchild, Little Mike & The Tornadoes, and The 44s. It’s not Top 40 dance - just another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.
Great blues fill the 455th hour of The Roadhouse, including a set of piano blues from The Big Easy. Johnny Rawls, The Rides, Ari Borger & Igor Prado, James Booker, and Smokin’ Joe Kubek & B’Nois King help provide a load of new blues for this edition. And, of course, all of it - new and old - makes for another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.
This edition of The Roadhouse is two-thirds full of artists who do things by themselves - truly independent self-released blues. Deb Ryder, Michigan Curve, Sean Chambers, Snarky Dave & The Prickly Bluesmen, and Little Miss Higgins & the Winnipeg Five lead the way with music they’re released on their own. Along with some well-known blues names, these artists defintely make the 454th Roadhouse another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.
It’s back to full groove mode in this edition of The Roadhouse, with a chair-dancing hour of blues. The Nighthawks, Snooks Eaglin, Steve James, Harmonica Shah, and Holland K. Smith keep the groove moving. It’s a fun hour, guaranteed, and, of course, another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.
Though almost imperceptibly, this edition of The Roadhouse takes the tempo down just a notch from the normal. Johnny Rawls, Shawn Holt & The Teardrops, Lou Pride, Studebaker John’s Maxwell Street Kings, and Anders Osborne fill this hour of The Roadhouse and definitely fill it with another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.
This hour of The Roadhouse is definitely an hour of variety. With blues from Chicago, Mississippi, Texas, Arizona, some new, some old - I think it’ll keep you moving for sixty minutes. Jason Ricci & New Blood, Husky Burnette, Little G Weevil, Guy Davis, and The Rides take us through the edition with another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard: the 451st Roadhouse.
