Saturday Matinee – Bench, Eric Bibb, Pepe Ahlqvist w/ the Wentus Blues Band, & the Sad Sam Blues Jam

Such a touching story. In clay.
[h/t Mme. Jujujive]

“America, for all of its associations with pain and its bloody history, has always been a place of incredible hope and optimism. To be American, and particularly to come from New York City, is to be blessed.” – Eric Bibb

Eric Bibb was interviewed in April 2019 by Charlie Heat at Kensaltown Live. Jump to 01:12 for some stompin’ blues.

Finnish blues rocker Pertti “Pepe” Ahlqvist & the Wentus Blues Band, live in Borås, Sweden (2004). Scandi blues at its best.

Let’s go one more. The Sad Sam Blues Jam features sisters Sadie Johnson (Vocals/Guitar) and Sam Johnson (Bass), with Krista Hess (Vocals/Guitar) and Matt McCarthy (Drums). Sam Motter is the wailin’ sax player. That’s what they sounded like in 2014 while still in high school!

Looks like that’ll do it for now. Gonna see if I can unclog the sidebar widgets that WorpDress arbitrarily farked up, but other than that, have a great weekend and we’ll be back tomorrow with more roughage.
