Holy overload Batman! What a week it was here in ’411 Land’. Starting with the posting of the E.G. Kight interview and the two-parter with Watermelon Slim things got off to a hot start, if you have not had the chance to read these two epic chats please click to the links above. Then the opportunity to see them both perform in Savannah at a great free blues night at the Savannah Jazz Festival.
Taking it just that extra step further we had the chance to see legendary guitar player singer Eleanor Ellis, along with Andy Cohen & Walter Liniger in Port Royal at another free concert. Ms. Ellis is an incredible treasure to us all, and you should see her skills for they will leave you teary-eyed and speechless.
So this week we see a new #1 – Anthony Gomes, hard driving sound that’s bluer than blue – congratulations on his fine release making it to the top. We see additions to the Chef Suggestions with two outstanding artists who should be in serious consideration for Blues Music Awards in Guy Davis, and Eugene ‘Hideaway’ Bridges.
Vincent Hayes (former BMA nominee) and Frank Bey & Anthony Paulie Band have debuted this week, different strokes for different folks but one thing in common is these two are seriously good release.
This coming weekend we head to Camden, SC for the Carolina Down Home Blues Festival, thanks to Shrimp City Slim. Lots of super talent there click on the link to read more, see ya there.
