THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF AUGUST 6-7, 2016

Congatulations to all of the Jus Blues Honorees last Wednesday and Thursday at the 16th Annual Jus Blues Music Awards in Tunica Mississippi. Ruby Andrews, Eddie Cotton Jr., King Edward, L.C. Cooke, Queen Ann Hines, Chick Rodgers, Zac Harmon, Big Bill Morganfield, Mud Morganfield, Syl Johnson and Billy Branch were all honored at the affair. I was there and really enjoyed the festivities, and a lot of BluesTime In The City Fans were there…. People actually listen to this show, and I was honored to meet and greet all of them. Next weekend on BTIC, we’re going to have some of the highlights of festivities and talk with some of the honored guests… Congratulations to the Jus Blues Music Foundation for another great presentation honoring these great and sometimes overlooked Blues artists.…..

William Bell was on PBS’s The Tavis Smiley Show last week. William’s career expands 40 plus years in the music business and has written and performed hit after hit after hit for a plethora of R and B artists. The conversation was great, even talking about his new CD release, “This is Where I Live.”in a while… And speaking of This is Where I Live, we have a link to the “Behind The Scenes” look at the making of this on the BluesNews Page at Bluestimeinthecity.com… And of course a link to his interview with Tavis Smiley…..

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF JULY 23-24, 2016

It is time for the BluesNews from the World of the BluesBlues for the weekend of July 23-24….2016…
AmericanBluesScene Magazine is reporting Willie Po Monkey Seaberry has died at the age of 74….Willie Po Monkey’s home became a juke joint in Merigold Mississippi on Thursday nights off Highway 61…ABS is reporting that this may well be the end of an era….It started in 1963, and signs outside said No Loud Music, No Beer Brought Inside and No Dope Smoking…That was just a few of the signs….Wink Wink….People would travel from all over the world to visit this Juke Joint…Very interesting article…We have a link to the article on the BluesNews Page at bluestimeinthecity.com…

And in the latest edition of Living Blues Magazine, they have a very good article on Barbara Lynn, by Lee Hilderbrand…She’s from Beaumont Texas, and in 1952, she hit it big with You’ll Lose a Good Thing..…That song is still a hit today…. What did I learn from this article??? I knew she was a great guitarist, and she played it left handed, but I didn’t know she played it upside down, like Albert King… Great article on Barbara Lynn….And in this issue, there’s an article on the Boston Blues Queen, Toni Lynn Washington by Margo Cooper… What did I learn from this articke??? I didn’t know Toni Lynn was eighty years old. I have met and interviewed her, but I didn’t know she was getting up there…She looks good… And there the article on Blues Heaven, Willie Dixon’s foundation in Chicago that provides business advice for musicians, and teaching the blues to kids….Greats articles in the latest edition of Living Blues Magazine……

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES
FOR THE WEEKEND OF JULY 16-17, 2016

chuck berryThat’s the music of the late great Johnnie Johnson, long time keyboard player for the famous Chuck Berry. American Blues Scene Magazine has reported that Johnnie Johnson will Receive the Congressional Gold Medal. This is one of the highest civilian honors in the United States, going to people whose achievements had an impact on American History and Culture. But, the medal is presented not for playing the Blues, but his military history. He enlisted in the Marines during World War II when the Marines were still segregated. From 1942 to 1949, more than 24, 000 African American men received Marine Corp training Camp Montford Point, a part of Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, and endured racism and all kinds of hatred, but they inspired social change while intergrating the all white Marine Corp. His widow, Frances Johnson will receive the medal at a ceremony later this year. The reason the Marines stopped this special program for admitting African American Marines was because of Executive Order, 9081, President Harry S. Truman Executive Order which desegregated the U.S. Armed Forces… Congratulations to the family of Johnnie Johnson….We have a link to the article that’s on the American BluesScene site on the BluesNews Page at Bluestimeinthecity.com

CBS Sunday Morning did a nice piece on the opening of the National Blues Museum in St Louis… They opened to the public back on April 1st, and the Museum is everything Blues from a worldwide perspective….. You can find the piece on Demand at CBS….We have a link to their site on the BluesNews Page at Bluestimeinthecity.com…
