Blues From the Basement

Jun 8, 2019

Saturdays at 10 PM on HPR-1. Blues from the Basement is a traditional blues show. whether it's Mississippi, Chicago, delta, or Piedmont blues, we cover it and try to remain true for the purists. And for those folks who may either have misconceptions about the blues or have never really delved into the blues... We do our best at trying to give our listeners a musical education on the great American art form simply known as the blues.

Tonight's session of Bridging the Gap is going to lean casually towards a blusey side, switching back and forth from African Blues to Americana with a lot of random in between.

Blues musician Garrett Dutton, better known as G. Love started his career as a teenage street musician in central Philadelphia. There he developed a unique style of mixing traditional Blues guitar and harmonica music with the “old school” Hip-Hop that was popular at the time. 

He and his band entitled “G. Love and Special Sauce” saw major commercial success in the mid- 90’s with their song “Baby’s Got Sauce”. He describes his sound as a party with Robert Johnson, The Rolling Stones, Run-DMC and the Beastie Boys…with Bob Dylan showing up at the end.
