Sean Carney’s BluesFray Tuesday series continues with a very special show featuring the award-winning Bob Margolin, along with Long Tall Deb & Colin John. Bob Margolin’s album "This Guitar and Tonight" was just nominated by the Blues Foundation for Acoustic Blues Album of the Year. Long Tall Deb & Colin John were winners of the 2019 Chicago Blues Challenge.
"This Guitar and Tonight," Bob’s first all-acoustic album, was inspired by his 1935 parlor guitar, and having Muddy Waters telling him 40 years ago he actually preferred acoustic guitar. The album features new original songs and guests included harp master Bob Corritore and guitar virtuoso Jimmy Vivino.
Like many blues vocalists of note, “Long Tall” Deb Landolt cultivated her soulful honey-dipped voice in church as a child. Her VizzTone debut “Raise Your Hands” gained heavy rotation on SiriusXM’s Bluesville and garnered attention both for her vocal dynamics and songwriting, which was influenced by her Texas/Mexico border roots.
Transpacific bluesman Colin John received his early touring miles with Teenie Hodges, Little Mike and The Tornadoes, Henry Grey, Pinetop Perkins, Michael Hill, Hubert Sumlin, Phil Guy, Big Jack Johnson, and Gary Brooker of Procol Harum.
Sean Carney’s BluesFray Tuesday is sponsored by The Middlefield Banking Center, with Central Ohio locations in Dublin, Westerville, and Sunbury. The series is held on the first Tuesday of each month, featuring Sean as host and performer, along with a variety of national and regional blues acts. An internationally known blues guitarist and singer, Sean is the host of “Inside Blues,” a weekly music program airing on public radio station WCBE every Sunday night from 6 - 9 pm. Sean also founded Blues for a Cure, a foundation that raises money for cancer research, education and screening organizations across Ohio.
