To ring in this year's Fourth of July, Harrison Patino explores influential tracks of early folk, blues, bluegrass and gospel music that had a profound impact on the larger soundscapes of what can be called "American Music." Songs of labor, strife, belief and protest from turbulent times in the country's history on an atypically patriotic edition of Bridging the Gap.

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.
