Thanks to the support of Summit Brewing of Saint Paul, we were able to have a 4th broadcast Live from the Artists Quarter in downtown Saint Paul. Maurice Jaycox stopped by and performed a couple of songs towards the end of the broadcast.
There were 3(THREE) interviews on this show so the play list may not be complete or in time order. I interviewed: 1) Joan Cartwright from Florida; 2) Sweet Mama J Dan Lansing of the Twin Cities Rockabilly Association re: the late Chris Gaffne’s Fundraiser on May 18th; and #) Blues Harmonica Man RJ Mischo.
Thank you so much to Melis, who joined us for around the Sur Seine:http://www.surseine.org in 90 minutes! We covered 10 days of shows in that time. The festival continues through May 25th. Check out the playlist for a preview, and other new music we heard.
