Blues and Rhythm Show 81 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, May 28, 2013 (1:00-2:30 pm)

We depart from our usual concentration on older music this week. The greater part of our program this week will be devoted to artists scheduled to play at the Hamilton Blues & Roots Festival, to be held in Westdale Village on Saturday, June 1st. A portion of King Street between Sterling and North Oval will be closed to accommodate the festival. Attendance is free. You can go to the festival website for an up-to-date program. We’ll be featuring some of the artists on the blues side of the festival on our May 28th show.

On the show: 

Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee – Georgia Sea Island Singers – Robert Pete Williams –  Harrison Kennedy – Steve Strongman – Trickbag – Alfie Smith – Paul Deslauriers – Ginger St. James – Ray Charles – and others

Listen to the program at FM 93.3 in Hamilton or on CFMU online at cfmu.mcmaster.ca. The program will be available to stream or as a podcast until June 25th.

Next week (June 4th)

We put together two programs this week. We’ve also planned the music for our 90 minute special on Alan Lomax’ Southern Journey recordings.  These recordings from 1959 and 1960 include some iconic performances – some made famous by the O Brother, Where Art Thou soundtrack from the Coen Brothers’ film. It’s humanity’s great fortune that Lomax was ready and able to make these field trips when he did. The recordings and the fascinating story behind their creation on next week’s program.
