THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF MAY 5-6, 2018   On the AmericanBluesScene.com web site, there’s an article, or should I say interview, on one of the real treasures in the blues…Bluesman Eddy The Chief Clearwater.  Eddy is 83 years old, and Eddy says he’s still having fun, having released his last BCD in 2014.  He was inducted in the Blues Hall of Fame in 2016, received the Jus Blues Music Award in 2016, and he’s still going strong.  Eddy brought a style and flair to the blues that had not been seen in the early 50’s with his Indian headdress and his struttin across the stage.  You talk about bring Flamboyant to the Blues, The Chief did just that.  The man has been doing this for over 60 years.  He talks about a lot of experiences over the years. Great interview loaded with information on The Chief.  The interview was done by J.D. Nash of American Blues Scene Magazine and we have a link to the interview on the BluesNews Page at BluesTime In The City.com…. https://www.americanbluesscene.com/interview-with-eddy-the-chief-clearwater-i-always-had-the-faith/ BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM And next week is the big week for the Blues Foundation in Memphis Tennessee.  The 39th Annual Blues Music Awards will begin May 10th.  This event brings together the biggest, the brightest, the who’s who in the Blues to honor and recognize the movers and shakers in the World of the Blues.  Actually, it begins on Tuesday the 8th with concerts, and runs through Friday the 11th with all types of activities including Book signings, The Blues Hall of Fame Inductions, Jam Sessions, Meet and Greets, Health Screenings, where they will have doctors, nurses and other health professionals to check you out….They even have a 12 step program and a Blues Yoga Class.  You can do the Blues Down Dog. Get it….Get it….If you want the full schedule on the Blues Foundtion’s week of activities, we have a link on the BluesNews Page at bluestimeinthecity.com https://blues.org/bma-schedule-2018/ BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM And a sad note here….(Music) That’s Deborah Coleman and this is the title cut from her BCD, Taking a Stand.  Guitarist Deborah Coleman made the transition unexpectedly on April 12th in Norfolk Virginia.  She lost her battle with pneumonia.  She was 61 years of age.  I liked to call Deborah “The Sista Guitar Slinger” because she could play a guitar.  Deborah was a Navy brat, and caught the blues bug in high school.  She released many albums over the years including Taking a Stand, I Can’t Lose, Livin on Love, and Soul Be It, just to name a few. She traveled nationally, and internationally to display her talents, and one thing a lot of people did not know about Deborah, besides being a master guitarist, she was also a master electrician.  A memorial service was held for her on April 19th.  The Blues World mourns the loss of Deborah Francine Coleman, The Sista Guitar Slinger.  Our condolences go out to the family of Deborah Coleman, one of the Blues finest….

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF APRIL 28-29, 2018 A play opened recently by the name of Tina….The Tina Turner Musical.  It’s about the life and times of the leggy one herself, 78 year old Tina Turner and Tina herself was one that worked for over three years to bring this to fruition.  She was on hand for the opening, which was held in London to rave revues.  It stars Adrienne Warren as Tina and Kobna Holdbrook-Smith as Ike.  Tina says she didn’t really want to do the musical, but she added that she still get cards and letters from people, especially that say Tina Gave them hope.  Gave them courage to move on with their lives after abusive relationships.  It goes through the entire life of Tina including her solo career and culminating with the performance in Rio in front of 180,000 fans.  I still think that’s a record audience to see a live performance.  Doesn’t say if the musical is coming here, But you can look for it soon I’m sure.  If you have never seen Tina Turner perform, especially with the Ikettes, check her out on YouTube and you will be stunned….After the performance of Angela Bassett in the film What’s Love Got to Do with it, I would Love to see someone else attempt to play Tina.  She played Tina to perfection.  Tina…The Tina Turner Musical…Coming here somewhere soon, I would think…. BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM There’s an article on the AmericanBluesScene.com site by Chloe Richardson titled Bobby Rush…He’s Gifted and He’s Blessed.  It was done at The Byron Ba y Blues Festival in Australia, and the first question asked, was funny.  Not on the interviewer’s part, but the answer that Bobby gave.  He talked about his preacher Daddy, and the first song his daddy sang to him as a seven year old.  And no, it was not a gospel song.  And, I didn’t know this….Bobby has released over 377 Albums in his career. That’s a lot of albums.  When asked about him being 84 years of age, he simply says “I’m Gifted.”  Great interview on Bobby Rush and we have a link to it on the BluesNews page at bluestimeinthecity.com….. https://www.americanbluesscene.com/bobby-rush-gifted-blessed-2/ BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM And last but not least, it’s fast approaching…The biggest Blues Festival in the world is taking place in Chicago…It’s the Chicago Blues Festival taking place June 8th through the 10th…. This is the 35th year for the Festival, and it’s put on by the Mayors’ Office of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.  The best part of this Festival is that it is absolutely free to the public.  Just walk up and walk in.  There are several stages of performers, and my experiences with this festival is that when one performance ends on one stage, you have about five minutes to get to the next stage so you won’t miss any of the performances.  The Festival takes place June 8th through the 10th…… If you want more information on Everything Chicago Blues Festival, from hotels to parking to who’s performing, which is I suppose is the most important thing, we have a link on the BluesNews page at bluestimeinthecity.com… https://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/dca/supp_info/chicago_blues_festival.html/ And speaking of Blues Festivals, one of the longest running Blues Festivals in the southeast is The Carolina Blues Festival in Greensboro North Carolina.  This is the 32nd year for them and it takes place May 19th and 20th.  This is a partnership of several entities in the Greensboro area, and it includes Food Banks, Literacy programs, Cultural Centers, Libraries and History Museums.  I Love History Museums.  They even have a Blues and Foods Marketplace that is free and open to the public.  Our radio affiliate WNAA The Voice in Greensboro is a part of all of these activities.  The Carolina Blues Festival takes place May 19th and 20th in downtown Greensboro North Carolina….That use to be called the Piedmont Blues Festival….When did they change the name……..If you want to know more about the Festival, we have a link on the BluesNews page at Bluestimeinthecity.com……. http://piedmontblues.org/festival-tickets/ WHERE THEY AT WHERE THEY AT:

THE BLUESNEWS FROM THE WORLD OF THE BLUESBLUES FOR THE WEEKEND OF APRIL 21-22, 2018 Great article on Zac Harmon in the April 12th edition of BluesBlast Magazine….It was written by a guy named Don Wilcock, who also wrote the Book You Gosh Darn Right I’ve got the Blues, the biography on Buddy Guy… In the article, Zac talks about every from his dad who was a Pharmacist, his experiences with B.B. King and Little Milton, to his experiences of writing songs. He even goes into what’s politically correct and politically incorrect in the Blues today. One of the highlights of the articles that Zac talked about, which was very touching to me, was his dedication to the Troops, so much so, that when they toured Kuwait back in 2009, they found out something that other acts did not do because of the danger involved.  What did they do??? They did it anyway…..Read the article, and you will thank Zac and others in the Blues for what they did…Great article by Don Wilcock in this months’ edition of BluesBlast Magazine.  We have a link to the article on the BluesNews page at bluestimeinthecity.com… https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox/162bb4a38f23be58 BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM A few months ago, in the great state of Mississippi, they did something that they really need some props for.  They unveiled their 200th Mississippi Blues Trail Marker in the town of Lyon Mississippi, right in front of their Town Hall.  This started in 2006, and they have done an incredible job with this project, reaching 200.  They have markers all over the state of Mississippi paying homage to their home grown music,   it is in the state.  You don’t just see them, if you take a minute, they have some very interesting information on them.   Want to find more on the Mississippi Blues Trail Markers, we have a link to the locations on our BluesNews page at bluestimeinthecity.com… http://msbluestrail.org/blues_marker_list BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM BLUESTIMEINTHECITY.COM From the AmericanBluesScene.com sight, imagine if you would, you have doing what you love all of your life, and then, at the age of 81, you hit it big.  No, not winning the lottery, but hitting it big doing what you love.  That’s what happened with Leo Bud Welch who released his first album in 2014 at the age of 81.  Now, there’s a documentary on Leo titled Late Blossom Blues and it hit the stores Friday the 20th.  This doc was directed by Wolfgang Pfoser Almer, and it follows Welch enjoying his passion for the music and his late found success.  They even found some old footage of Leo performing his signature song Praise His Name, which is also incredible when you consider no one outside of this hometown of Bruce Mississippi had even seen Leo as a young man……We have a link to the trailer on the BluesNews page at BluesTime In The City.com…..Barry Kernzer wrote the article that appears on the AmericanBluesScene site…. https://youtu.be/fVX3JNw5M_0   WHERE THEY AT WHERE THEY AT:
