Thanks Marty, today we’re going to hear an original song recorded at KASU Blue Monday in Paragould.
Charlotte Taylor is an Arkansas blues lady. Playing mostly in the Little Rock area I’m always glad when I get to hear her in Helena, Newport, or Paragould. That’s right! On April 20, 2009, Charlotte Taylor and Gypsy Rain played at the Red Goose Deli in Paragould, Arkansas, thanks to the KASU Blue Monday concert series.
Charlotte and her band, Gypsy Rain, are a top Arkansas blues act, playing regularly at the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, Arkansas. I would see her every year at The Biscuit and a couple of times I got to play for her with Delta Legends or The Emporium Orkestra.
I first met Charlotte Taylor on the internet when we added her to Delta Boogie. I think the Blue Monday gig in Paragould was the first time I saw her in person.
She sang great with a great band. They have a lot of variety with their blues. The song I picked to play today has a lot of jazz in it. And it’s a Charlotte Taylor original!
So here she is now, introducing her own song at the Red Goose Deli on April 20, 2009.
And that’s Charlotte Taylor and Gypsy Rain playing her song, “Hi Roller”, at KASU Blue Monday on April 20, 2009. Don’t miss Something Blue, Saturday night at 10:00, to hear Adam Deitch and Grey Boy Allstars.
