Studio 2A performances with Shotgun Party and Paul Geremia
We have two special live performances this Friday, May 15th on The Homestretch. Shotgun Party will be on the air around 5pm. This female led trio from Austin Texas specializes in back porch country swing. Shotgun Party will be performing Friday night at the Red Room, in Grill downtown on Congress, along with Tucson's own Silver Thread Trio. Paul Geremia will be on the air around 5:30. This master Bluesman got his start during the Folk Blues revival of the early 1960’s, learning firsthand from legendary players Son House, Howlin’ Wolf and Skip James. Today he is widely regarded as one of the best living Country Blues fingerpickers. Rolling Stone proclaimed him, “One of the finest blues artists in a long time,". Paul Geremia is performing Friday night in a Rhythm & Roots concert at Old Town Artisans along with Arizona Blues Hall of Famer Hans Olson.
