Sometimes you can't deny it. Sometimes, things align themselves up so well that they become a force all their own. Well, on this week's World Music Show (12/6), the forces of World Music beats line up in this way. The'll be quite a bit to digest and deal with, so it's a good thing that all these beats are done in the name of all that is good.
Make sure you join us this week (12/6/14) on Time for fhe Blues as Henry Cook and I heat up the late night with some very cool blues. We’ve got all sorts of temptations and it’s the perfect time to indulge. After all, no one’s watching!
It was ten years ago this month that the world lost one of its best bluesmen, the legendary Son Seals. Seals was the epitome of cool and would often show up unannounced at clubs. You could feel the whispers that maybe tonight the man with the black body guitar would be here to set the club on fire.
It might take you a couple of days to recover from eating too much turkey on Thanksgiving and maybe shopping too much on Black Friday and Shop Local Saturday, but you should be recovered enough to tune into Time for the Blues this Saturday (11/29/14). If we don’t get you moving, you might want to check your pulse.
Right off the bat, let me say Happy Holidays and yada yada yada and all that stuff that goes along with the season. And, throughout this season, they'll be nuggets of World Music type of celebration tunes to bring the globe closer to us here in RVA. But, as for this week's World Music Show (11/29), let the fun commence!
We'll go on an exciting ride with banjo man and slide guitarist Tony Furtado with selected tracks from his Studio A appearance from March of 2009. Then we’ll enjoy an engaging set of songs from Tar Heel tunesmith Jeanne Jolly, accompanied by 8-string guitarist Chris Boerner.
Their technical ability, their timing, their remarkable musical maturity belie the tender years of Zeb and Samantha Snyder, a gifted and well rehearsed brother and sister from the hills of North Carolina. Along with their dad and mom Bud and Laine, and their charming kid brother Owen, they’re delighting audiences across the country…like ours. Coming up, we’ll devote the full hour this week to reliving part of their recent performance here in Richmond.
