THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUE FOR THE WEEKEND OF SEPTEMBER 16-17, 2017 September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and Buddy Guy serves as the national spokesman.  It is projected that 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, and the Blues heavyweights are letting you know that you need to talk to your doctor, your family, and anyone about prostate cancer.  There are two shows that are being held to aid in funding of Prostate cancer, and an autographed polka dot guitar will be given to a lucky person with Buddy Guy’s signature.  One of the events have already been held, Sept 10th, and the other one will be held Monday Sept 18th…. This is cool.  Sons and Daughters of some of these legends will be on hand to Jam and disseminate information of Prostate Cancer….All of whom have been touched by Prostate cancer in one way or another…The lineup include Carlise Guy, daughter of Buddy Guy, Shirley King, Daughter of BB King…Demetria Taylor, daughter of Eddie Taylor, Kenny Kinsey, son of Bid Daddy Kinsey, Freddie Dixon, son of Willie Dixon, Rose Reed, daughter of Jimmy and many others.  And on top of all of that, They have  music called Blues4Prostate Cancer.  The Music titles include Steal Away by Raful Neal, I Got What it Takes by KoKo Taylor, Don’t Take Advantage of Me By Lonnie Brooks, This is The End by Buddy Guy, and many others….We have a link to it on the BluesNews Page at BluesTime In The City.com…. http://bg.buddyguy.com/see-the-blues-tour-4-prostate-cancer-september-10th-and-18th/ BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COMBLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COMBLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COMBLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM There’s an article in the latest issue of Living Blues Magazine titled Clarksdale’s Next Generation of Blues…It’s all about how they teach the Blues to the youth in Clarksdale Mississippi, and the fruits of their labor that they are seeing now.  I’m sure there are many programs like this, but this one started decades ago, and there are three of their graduates highlighted.  Christone Kingfish Ingram…Anthony Big A Sherrod and Lee Williams.  Young people in their teens that’s keeping the blues alive.  I’ve personally met Kingfish and have seen him perform.  He is good.  Cudos to the program and the articles are worth the read…..They are in the latest issue of Living Blues Magazine….

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF SEPTEMBER 9-10, 2017 This came from the American Blues Scene site…..Vinyl Records are making a comeback, but Picture Vinyl Records are really making a comeback.  These are the records with the pictures on the actual records.  They were very popular in the 70’s, but mostly for R & B, Rock, and other genres of music… Now, the Picture Vinyl of blues is really coming on strong.  According to J.D. Nash in an article on the American Blues Scene web site, graphics and pictures are on a lot of Blues Releases now, to include Sugar Blue,  John Lee Hooker, Bo Diddley, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robert Johnson, Joe Bonamassa, Howlin Wolf and many other Blues Stars.   These are extremely popular at events like Record Store Day, which was just celebrated. J.D. reminds you that they are not cheap, and listed some of the favorite picks.  We have a link to the article on the BluesNews page at BluesTime In The City.com…. https://www.americanbluesscene.com/2017/08/blues-vinyl-picture-discs/ BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COMBLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COMBLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COMBLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COMBLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM We play Marquise Knox every once and an while on this show….Marquise is one of the young guns of the blues from the Saint Louis area….Marquise was attacked and stabbed as he returned home from a gig on August 26th… He was taken to the Memorial Hospital and was treated for his injuries.  The case is still under investigation, according to the Bowling Green Missouri police report…It happened as he was entering his home……Marquis reported on his Facebook page, and I’m quoting…”I thought I was going to die…Thankfully, my collarbone stopped the object….”  Scary stuff…It seems that he’ll be just fine….He’s suppose to appear in St Louis on Saturday, the 16th…Don’t know if he’ll make it…I’ll check that out….

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF AUGUST 26-27, 2017 Our condolences go out to the family of legendary Blues Writer, Paul Oliver.  Actually, he was an Architectural Historian by trade, but became one of the greatest blues historians of this era.  He was responsible for penning The Story of Bessie Smith, The Story of the Blues, Broadcasting the Blues, Black Blues in the Segregation Era, Barrelhouse Blues and many many articles on the Blues.  Paul was 90 years old, and the Blues Music Family will certainly miss him….. BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COMBLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COMBLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COMBLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COMBLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM I was in Washington DC a few weeks ago at an African-American Museum Conference and one of the guest panelist was Lonnie Bunch, the Founding Director of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.  They have an amazing exhibit of the Music of the Blues there.  Of course, he was surrounded by his handlers, his body guards, maybe some Secret Service Agents, A CIA agent or two, and possibly a local DC policeman or two.  All trying to stop the throngs of people from getting to him.  When they saw me coming, they made way for me because they knew I was working for you…..Yeah….Right….I was at the right place at the right time…..I asked Mr. Bunch, with all the exhibits they have at museum, why did they go so far in depth and detain on The Blues….. (Lonnie Bunch Talks) And let me point out, I focused on The Blues because that was my interest.  And I was really surprised by the Love with which they treated the Blues.  They have every genre of African American music you can name there, and it’s worth all the time you spend there.  If you don’t visit any other museum in your lifetime, try to get to DC with the kids and grandkids to see this for yourself.  It’s amazing.
