The Blues: 6.8.19

Jun 6, 2019

We've got a special edition of The Blues on Saturday, June 8th at 11pm.  The show begins with a set of songs by Charlie Musselwhite, Bobby Rush, Ruthie Foster, and Susan Tesdeshi.  The Tedeschi Trucks Band is bringing their tour to the PNC Pavilion July 19th.  They're in Japan next week.

This year many nationally known musicians will be making stops in the Greater Cincinnati area.  Tours have already been booked at Memorial Hall, Riverbend, U.S. Bank Arena, and the Rose Music Center at The Heights. 

The Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra is also presenting their annual "Classical Roots" concert in honor of International Women's Day on Friday, March 8th at Music Hall.  And, country legend Mickey Gilley is bringing his Urban Cowboy Reunion Show to the Belterra Casino Resort on Saturday, March 9th with Johnny Lee.  

This week on The Blues, Saturday evening, October 13th at 11pm, you'll hear from Shemekia Copeland's new album, America's Child, Albert King, the Goshorn Brothers, and Peter Frampton in the first set.

The second set starts off with two songs with Eric Clapton from his time with Derek and the Dominos and Cream.  There's also the classic "Hideaway" from King Records recording artist Freddie King, and "Dirty Pool" from Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble's first studio album, "Texas Flood," Epic Records, 1983.

And the show ends with some favorites, Charlie Musselwhite, Diana Krall, Eva Cassidy, and Ken Nordine.  Technical assistance from Ben Fibbe & Rick Andress.

He's a guitar wizard, platinum-selling recording artist, former Cincinnati resident, and he's on his way back to town to perform on Thursday, June 21. 

Cincinnati's a popular stop for many nationally known blues artists, and we also are lucky to have so many talented musicians making Cincinnati their home.  So, I thought it'd be fun on this blues show, Saturday night, April 7th at 11pm, to spotlight musicians who have gigs booked here.

The first set begins with blues legend Buddy Guy followed by Walter Trout, Sonny Moorman who has an incredibly busy schedule, and Noah Hunt who's coming to the Ludlow Garage with Jason Dennie.

Mavis Staples is playing Memorial Hall and will probably sell out her April 20th show.  Also heard in the second set of The Blues are the Blind Boys of Alabama, Keb'Mo, and Taj Mahal.  And, the show ends with Todd Rundgren, Peter Frampton, and Steely Dan.

This Saturday evening on the Blues, February 11th at 11pm, some of my favorite lovey-dovey songs from some of my favorite musicians.  The show starts off with Leon Russell's, "A Song for You," followed by Shemekia Copeland, Etta James' famous "At Last," and Leonard Cohen performing "I'm Your Man."

Peter Frampton starts off the second set which also includes Diana Krall's, "Peel Me a Grape," and the classic Miles Davis tune, "My Funny Valentine."  

This week on The Blues, which'll air at 11pm on Saturday, March 21st, the show begins with a song written by Jimmy Smith "Bayou" and is played by the great Joey DeFrancesco.  This is followed by Ruth Brown with a recording she did in 1989, "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out" with Grady Tate on drums and altoist Hank Crawford. 

Music legend and former Cincinnati resident Peter Frampton is coming back to town for a concert appearance at the Horseshoe Casino on June 22. He’s on the phone with our Brian O’Donnell to talk about the tour with the Doobie Brothers, the upcoming release of the music he wrote for the Cincinnati Ballet, and a new Humble Pie box set.

After a triumphant appearance with the Cincinnati Ballet in April, guitar virtuoso and former Cincinnatian Peter Frampton is coming back to town with a few of his friends: BB King and Sonny Landreth. They’ll be in concert at the PNC Pavilion on August 14 with a show called Frampton’s Guitar Circus Tour, and he spends a few minutes with Brian O’Donnell to talk about the music and these guitar legends.

Music great Peter Frampton is entering new territory – ballet! His music will be the focus of the next performances of the Cincinnati Ballet on April 26 and 27. In addition to some of his previously recorded music, he tells our Brian O’Donnell that he has written a brand new piece specifically for the ballet.
