Next up is Etta James, playing at Longwood Gardens in Kennet Square, Pa. I saw Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi with thier Soul Stew Revival band there last summer. Longwood Gardens is a beautiful outside venue. The crowd was great, the seats were great, the surroundings gorgeous, wine, beer and sandwiches sold, plentiful bathrooms, hey, whats not to like??? My tickets for Etta are Third Row Center!! Very Expensive!! I can't wait. I'm sure I'll be blowing kisses and doing the "We're Not Worthy" at this concert too. My other sister is the recipient of the other ticket as her Birthday Gift. Yeah, she owes me big time.
Also appearing at Longwood Gardens is Shemekia Copeland on August 22. I am a little worried that Shemekia is going to change her sound, read this, and you'll see why I am scared. See that last paragraph, uh oh......got 2 tix to see Shemekia, any takers on that second ticket???
The Derek Trucks Band will be at the Keswick Theater in Pa on Friday May 29. I would love to go, trying to make arrangements as we speak. Who wants to go?? send me an email. xoSusan
PS Cowboy Junkies concert? Tickets given to friends while I stayed home and nursed a teenager with strep throat.........they reported that it was great.......next time. sigh.

I have excellent news to share, fellow Blues Fans! Walter Trout is coming to the Scottish Rite Auditorium in Collingswood, NJ, on Sat April 4. This man has SICK guitar skills. Yeah, I already got 2 tickets. The seats are very good too, First Row of the Right Center Mezzanine, aisle seats, my favorite place to be! I don't care if I have to take my cat, Buddy Guy or BG for short, I'm going!!! I'm going to have WAY MORE than $37 of Good Time! Until then, I leave you with this:

Here is Mr. Billy Cox, an original bass player with Hendrix. Here is an article and interview with Billy Cox about his experience!
Mr. Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Very hot. Amazing guitarist. What's not to like???
I didn't get a good shot of KWS and Noah Hunt so here is a photo is from the Experience Hendrix Website:
Another EH website photo. I wasn't able to get one of Doyle Bramhall II.
Mr. Hubert Sumlin getting his groove on:

My Hero, Mr. Buddy Guy, for 10 whole minutes:
I could not start a Brand New Blues Blog with a more appropriate homage. I love this man because of his personality while performing, his mad guitar skills and that sexy voice. I was fortunate enough to see "Experience Hendrix" at the Tower Theater last year. I went with my ex-bf, who is also a huge Blues fan. His collection of CD's is astounding and first rate. There is nothing better than going to a concert with someone whose passion for the music matches your own. Someone who truly "gets it". One of my goals for this Humble blog is to create a network of Blues Friends to share info and attend events with. In today's economy, it's hard to get a Non-Blues friend (NBF from now on) to shell out money for a concert ticket, if they don't absolutely love the artist.
Here is the best pic I took of Buddy from the show. The quality is low but it was the best one I got.
"Drum Roll Please, My HERO, Mr. Buddy Guy. He is singing here "when I was a young boy, I used to play with RattleSnakes" and I BELIEVE HIM. He is bad, very, very, bad. If I was the kind of girl to throw her panties on the stage, they would have been airborne. But alas, those days are SO OVER that even DOGS KNOW THAT THEY ARE OVER."
