CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Summer headlining tour and fall Jackson Browne dates announced

In anticipation of his upcoming album release, Grammy-winning producer, guitarist and songwriter Larry Campbell will be sitting in with house band The Roots this evening, Monday, June 15, on NBC's The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.  The show airs 11:35/10:35pm Central - click here for local airtimes. Campbell is known for his work with Levon Helm and as a longtime sideman for Bob Dylan (among others).  Campbell and his wife, singer Teresa Williams, will be releasing their eponymous debut album on June 23 on Red House. After decades of marriage and seven years working closely with Levon Helm, the duo are stepping into the spotlight with Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, bringing their music on the road with a headlining tour in July that includes dates in Chicago (7/15) and Nashville (7/22-23), followed by a two-month run with Jackson Browne in the fall, both as the opening act and playing in his band. See complete dates below. The album is available for pre-order now HERE.

The Wall Street Journal praised the "vintage Muscle Shoals groove" of the couple's debut album (out June 23) last month. Listen to opening track "Surrender to Love" here:

Peer Praise for 'Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams':
"The music Larry and Teresa make when they sing together is truly transcendent, with the blend of their voices on songs that are always deeply moving." – Emmylou Harris

"Larry Campbell is like a musical iceberg. Not that he's cold in any way at all. He's as hot a player as anyone walking. It's just that the magnitude of his musicianship is not on view all at the same time. Most of it is out of sight until he decides to do something else. The songs that he does with his wife Teresa are beautiful. If there is anything missing in what he brings, she supplies it. She's a rare talent. I'm sorry, but I just can't put into words how I feel about what they do." - David Bromberg

"There is a feeling of being amongst friends that share a love for the heritage of great music. Larry and Teresa embody all that is natural and heartfelt. They sing with a passion that is at once timeless and fresh. They own this music and have an obvious deep respect for the roots from which it came." - Bill Payne (Little Feat)
