The Roadhouse 638
[26 May 2017 | No Comment | 56 views]

Family graduations two days and five hundred miles apart mean you get a Roadhouse Rewind for show 638. From ten years ago, I hope Roadhouse 118 will keep you entertained until I return next week with another new show.

We return to the freewheelin’ feel of The Roadhouse this week, with the Blues Music Awards shows behind us. Dave Hole, Hamilton Loomis, Anson Funderburgh, Roosevelt Sykes, and Saffire – The Uppity Blues Women are just some of the artists you’ll love in this edition. It may be a tough genre to pin down, but you’re sure to find each and every artist in the 118th Roadhouse Podcast deeply rooted in the blues – the finest blues you’ve never heard.

This hour of The Roadhouse is our annual look back at the Blues Music Awards. The hour is dedicated to the winners in the major categories. Diunna Greenleaf, Doug MacLeod, Kenny Neal, Mavis Staples, and Tedeschi Trucks Band are among the artsts in the spotlight. Even though I know I’ve had a couple of the tracks in the show, that doesn’t prevent it from being another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – our review of the 38th Blues Music Awards in the 636th Roadhouse.

It’s hard to imagine how so much great music can be packed into an hour. After whittling down the playlist by half, I think I arrived at the quintessential Roadhouse. Kilborn Alley Blues Band, Doug South & The Roundabouts, Gina Sicilia, Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm, and the Johnny Max Band are all out there just waiting to blow you away. Of course, they’ll do that with another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard – the 634th Roadhouse.
