THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF JULY 7-8, 2018

On the AmericanBluesScene.com site, there is an article by JD Nash that talks about the Real Names of about 30 famous blues artists.  This is really cool and somewhat surprising, looking at some the real names and the names they go by.  For example, I always thought Big Bill Broonzy’s name was Bill Broonzy.  But his birth name is Lee Conley Bradley.  Bumble Bee Slim’s name could be anything, but his birth name was Admiral Amos Easton…KoKo Taylor, who we heard at Top of the Hour….Her birth name is Cora Anna Walton.  I knew that one, and Taj Mahal….His birth name is Henry Saint Clair Fredericks……and the list goes on and on.  Great idea and great article by JD Nash of American Blues Scene Magazine web site,  especially if you’re like me, into that type of Blues Stuff….We have a link to the article on the BluesNews Page at BluesTime In The City.com…..

We’ve been informing you of the Jus Blues Music Awards show beginning July 31st and running through August 4th in Tunica Mississippi.  For some reason, a lot of people I talk to don’t think that there are that many blues artists that can be honored.  I don’t know where they get their information, but I brought that up to Mr. Charles Mitchell, the Executive Director of the Jus Blues Music Awards…He informed us that they have a list of over 500 artists to pull from, and over the last 10 years they have honored over 150 artists.  He also said that they are not “purists.” They understand how other musical genres originated from the Blues, and they have no problems honoring those people too.  You can hear the full sound of Mr. Mitchell on the BluesNews Page at Bluestimeinthecity.com…..
