The BluzNdaBlood Show #247, This Show Sucks! It Blows! It’s My Harp Show!

By request from listener Matt:

“Hey, Dave, thanks for making these excellent podcasts, I make everyone in my office listen to them and they’re always asking me when’s the next BluzNdaBlood coming! Anyway, I’m trying to teach myself to play the harp so it would be awesome if you could do a harp heavy show so I can find some more great musicians to follow and learn from. Kind regards, Matt”

We end with Guitar Shorty playing “Blues In My Blood”…. I love it!

Well, you know the routine! Now that you’ve heard this great music, go out and by the music! Or go out and see them live! Then buy their music and tell them you heard their music on The BluzNdaBlood Show! Your first stop for the best of the blues!
