Don’t miss Something Blue, Saturday night at ten, right here on KASU.
Something Blue – Happy Hour
Welcome to Something Blue. I’m Hairy Larry and I’ve got the Blues, for you.
Now that’s what I’m talking about. It’s John Shepherd and Happy Hour recorded live at Blues Fest on September 26, 2010. We heard “Hey Joe”, “Party Man” and “I’m A Man”. John Shepherd is a fantastic Blues guitarist and he always puts on a show. He was joined by another Wynne guitarist, Kyle Harrison, for most of the set. It was his birthday!
You’re listening to Something Blue on KASU, 91.9 FM, and streaming live on the internet at http://kasu.org.
Here’s two more from John Shepherd and Happy Hour, “Going Down” and “Prowling”.
All right now, we’re listening to John Shepherd and Happy Hour tonight. I recorded these songs at Blues Fest held every Fall at the Craighead Forest Bandshell in Jonesboro, Arkansas. John Shepherd is from Wynne, Arkansas and he is a Blues Fest regular.
We just heard “Rock Me Baby” and one John wrote called “So Tired”. Coming up next is a song beloved by Blues guitar fans everywhere, “Red House”.
Oh yeah, John Shepherd playing one he called a work in progress. Remember you heard it first right here on Something Blue.
