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!

Magic Slim BMA nomination & "Mountain Stage" show

Blind Pig recording artist Magic Slim has received yet another nomination for a Blues Music Award, as announced by the Blues Foundation. Over the course of his illustrious career, Slim has been nominated many times and has won a half dozen on the coveted awards, considered the highest accolade in the blues field. This year he's nominated for best "Traditional Blues Male Artist." Winners will be announced at the Blues Music Awards show in Memphis on May 10th. Slim.jpg
In other news, Magic Slim and the Teardrops will be traveling to Morgantown, West Virginia to perform on "Mountain Stage" on Sunday, January 15th. The nationally syndicated radio program records performances in front of live audiences and broadcasts them later on over 120 radio stations. They're also posted on the National Public Radio website and made available as a podcast which gets about 6,000 downloads a week. The January 15th show also features Johnny Winter and Ruthie Foster and will air at the end of April.

Magic Slim is the greatest living proponent of the intense, electrified, Mississippi-to-Chicago blues style that spawned much of the music played by modern blues artists and rockers. In the words of Elmore magazine, "As far as electric Chicago blues is concerned, he's the man. Period. Dude's a national treasure." No Depression said of his latest CD, Raising The Bar, "This is a record any blues aficionado should have in their library. However, this is also a record anyone with an ear for great music will immensely enjoy!" To hear samples, please click HERE.
