This Monday's lineup for WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour is filled with the eclectic music that has made WoodSongs such a delight.
Join Michael Johnathon and his all-volunteer crew (J.D. Crowe told me they are the best he's ever seen!) - at the Kentucky Theater to enjoy John Lee Hooker, Jr. and flamenco specialists Tierra Negra and Muriel Anderson.
JOHN LEE HOOKER JR. is the son of the great John Lee Hooker. While living the "life of a bluesman," Hooker Jr. unfortunately succumbed to the demons that surround it, derailing his musical career for many years. With the support of his family and friends, and a crew of talented musicians who believe in him, Hooker Jr. found his own inner muse, making music that expresses the depth of emotion he has experienced in life. With two Grammy nominations and major blues awards, his latest CD is "Live in Istanbul Turkey."
TIERRA NEGRA and MURIEL ANDERSON are three brilliant guitarists who met in a castle in Germany. In the world of modern Flamenco, few artists have attained the heights of thee two German guitarists known in Europe as "Tierra Negra."
The duo are often cited as the protagonists of Flamenco Nuevo. A WoodSongs favorite, Muriel is widely respected as one of the world's foremost fingerstyle guitarists and harp-guitarists and is the first woman to have won the National Fingerpicking Guitar Championship. This trio has come together in an exciting CD titled "New World Flamenco." murielanderson.com tierranegra.de
