Blues Moon Radio playlist, info, and upcoming events

Thanks to "The Fox" for subbing in while I had perhaps the first case of flu in the Midlands of South Cackalacky. That had me down for the count, y'all. I pity anyone who has been sick with anything similar and power to them if they kept motoring. I could be up 15 minutes a day, max. So, again, thanks to Fox for subbing!

I am crawling back to life, so will keep this short...

Today's show is a mix - we have some fun stuff and some things to proclaim!

One is the Roy Book Binder show at the UU Coffeehouse in Columbia, SC on Saturday Sept 17. Go and see this master of finger-picked guitar - if you know and love Blues, you will be aware he traveled with and learned from SC's own Rev. Gary Davis in the 1970s. Absorbed a lot from him. I've done an interview in RBB's Traveling Man wagon, and his stories are not to be missed. Click below for info on UU tix.

Another is the FolkFabulous Festival on Saturday, Sept 24 on the USC Horseshoe. That fest is free and worth a million dollars.  I will be interviewing the cultural coordinator, Laura Green, next week on Blues Moon Radio, but this week we'll be featuring Freddie Vanderford, Piedmont Blues Harp and Mill Billy Blues as our Word of Mouth Productions' Artist of the Week. Just could not love them more!

Our Facebook pal, Mr. Venditti, asked why I couldn't play a collection of "Alberts" on the show, and there is no good reason not to and a thousand great ones to do it... so we will call his bet... and raise him an Alberta, to boot! I love to hear requests on my Blues Moon Radio Facebook page... I plan shows in advance, so hop on the request bus early for best seating!

Here is tonight's playlist, from which I'll choose the songs... and beneath that is info/links about the two concerts coming up. Don't forget October is the Downhome Blues Festival in Camden (Oct 6 - 8) and Word of Mouth Productions' Columbia Blues Fest is (free!) in Columbia Saturday, Oct. 15th in Martin Luther King Park.

Folk Fabulous: Saturday, September 24, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The University of South Carolina’s McKissick Museum will present the 4th annual FOLKFabulous festival on Saturday, September 24th, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. in front of the museum on USC’s historic Horseshoe in Columbia. This event is free and open to the public.

Demonstrating artisans include The Columbia Woodworkers, Jean Laney Harris Folk Heritage Award (FHA) recipient Ike Carpenter, Mary May, Michael McDunn, Thomas Williams, and the Palmetto Woodturners.

Co-presented by the Columbia Woodworkers and the Greenville Woodworkers Guild, A Compass to Guide explores the diverse woodworking traditions that contemporary South Carolina furniture makers draw upon for inspiration.

FOLKFabulous is funded with support from the South Carolina Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts. ### The University of South Carolina’s McKissick Museum tells the story of southern life: community, culture, and the environment. The Museum is located on the University of South Carolina’s historic Horseshoe with available parking in the garage at the corner of Pendleton and Bull streets. All exhibitions are free and open to the public. The Museum is open from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturdays.

As always we thank our underwriters, who help bring great music to the Midlands, because we could not imagine our show without their input and support:  Papa Jazz Record Shoppe; the UU Coffeehouse; California Republic Stand Up Paddleboards in Leesville near Lake Murray; and Word of Mouth Productions, who present the Columbia Blues Festival each autumn - hold Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016 open for a great show!
