Roy Rogers & Norton Buffalo

Master of the slide guitar Roy Rogers and harmonica virtuoso Norton Buffalo are tonight’s featured artists.
I open with Roy tearing up the blues with his unique style and voice. In the middle are a few videos of Roy and Norton together, closing with Norton bring his versions of the blues and rock.

Both artists are from the San Francisco Bay area and can be found at local venues throughout the area when they are not touring.

Roy has been awarded six Grammys as producer of albums by Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, and John Lee Hooker. He has toured with John Lee Hooker and his own band The Delta Rhythm Kings as well as having released eight solo albums.

Norton has been a longstanding member of the Steve Miller Band and has recorded on over 175 albums with artists ranging from Bonnie Raitt to the Marshal Tucker band and even Hawaiian Slack Key guitarist George Kahumoku Jr. with their collaboration awarded Hawaiian Slack Key Album of the year.

KT Tunstall

Having given up on radio and rarely listening, I once and a while miss a new young and upcoming musician who is actually good!

I know they are out there somewhere, but with the ratings driven radio programming issued by only a few rating services it is far and few between and painfully abhorring waiting around for them.

Therefore I’m sure I am missing at least a few.

Last evening, scrolling through the dreadfully boring cable networks I ran across an hour long performance of tonight’s artist and was rather impressed. This gal’s got it!

While researching the videos for this evening I found that indeed I had seen her before at the 2007 Live Earth concert and at the Bob Dylan Tribute, but I guess I misplaced her in the crowd of other more familiar artists.

Tonight I open with KT’s initial appearance on the Jools Hooland show in the UK and finish with a couple of rockers from the Dylan Tribute.
