PDXBluescast – Show #29

Hey, it’s great to be back, and to celebrate we have some cool new music from Joe McMurrian, an interview with Steve Cheseborough at the Waterfront Blues Festival plus one of his tunes, a vintage tune from Monti Amundson and the Blubinos, and a REALLY vintage cut (and a surprise!) from Pete Karnes.

Two things: First, a heartfelt Thank You to everybody who took the time to express their sympathies over my dad’s passing. It was a very thoughtful and humbling gesture, and it meant a lot to me during a tough time. Second, if you want to check out the very interesting review of this podcast over on the Blues In London site, just click here. Let me know what you think!

If you’re a Portland-area musician and would like your material featured on the show, send me e-mail for instructions on how to get it done. If I love it, I’ll play it!

Welcome back! Boy did I miss this show. That was a great interview with Steve. Everytime he opens his mouth, I learn something.

Great interview with my brother Steve!
Keep up the great work.

[...] Okay, enough preamble. For tonight, Friday the 15th, I’m offering you a choice between the blues-rock power trio format and a somewhat lower-key but still tasty blues approach. If you lean toward the former, go catch Big Monti Amundson at the Cascade Bar & Grill. Monti serves up rough & ready, muscular blues – to get a taste, listen to Show #29 and Show #27. And if you’re in the mood for that more traditional blues feel, head over to Halibut’s for the expert guitar sounds of Rick Welter. Rick’s got impressive chops and a matching résumé that includes stints with Charlie Musselwhite and others. He sings great too! [...]
