The Blues Show with Jonny Meister: 1/6/24 - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

Kevin Burt released his latest album, “Thank You Brother Bill: A Tribute To Bill Withers,” and you’ll hear selected songs from the album. Burt is currently gearing up for his tribute show to BillWithers in February at The Sellersville Theatre. You’ll also hear more music from The Memphis Blues Box, a 20-CD, 534-track set (complete with a 12 X 12 9-pound book) issued by Bear Family Records in Germany. Also from the box set, you’ll hear Howlin’ Wolf, B. B. King, and Memphis Slim, as well as a number of less well-known artists.

We play songs from John Colgan-Davis and Johnny Never, a Philadelphia-area duo who are headed to Memphis later this month, sponsored by the Central Delaware Blues Society, to compete in The International Blues Challenge. On January 7th in Dover, DE the pairing are holding an afternoon fundraiser show aimed to help them pay for the trip to Memphis. More info on John Colgan-Davis & Johnny Never in The International Blues Challenge.
