Welcome back, everybody and Happy New Year! It’s time for our traditional New Blues for a New Year show! We’re going to highlight a lot of the new blues CDs I’ve received lately in the blues filled studio down here in the River City of Virginia…
We started off the show with the great Charlie Musselwhite. That was his song called “Blues, Why Do You Worry Me”. Buy his brand new CD called Juke Joint Chapel.
Who else is on our line up for providing you with some great blues for this new year?
Well we’ve got Chris James and Patrick Rynn, David Egan, Dan Bubien, Hard Garden, Jack Mack & The Heart Attack Horns, Detroit Memphis Experience, The CD Woodbury Band, Back Pack Jones, The Welsh T Band, The Harlis Sweetwater Band, Deb Ryder, Tinsley Ellis, and following up with the original honey dripper himself, Roosevelt Sykes.
So you ready to hear some new blues for a new year? I hope so. Crank it up my friends and we’re off and running!
OK, well that first full four song set started off with Chris James and Patrick Rynn. “Just Another Kick in the Teeth” is from their brand new CD called Barrel House Stomp. David Maxwell and Eddie Shaw help out on that song.

Obviously by now you’ve realized that this New Blues for a New Year show has lots of different styles of blues music. I really wanted to mix it up a bit, so talk about mixing it up….lets start it up with a great tight band I just learned about from my buddy Steve…..from Superstar Records here’s Jack Mack & The Heart Attack Horns.
