Spoonful of Blues

Mondays 7pm-9pm

From its beginnings in the Mississippi delta as the call-and-response chants of plantation workers to the musically technical and progressive genre that it has become, the blues has an atmosphere and style all its own.

Started 40 years ago by local blues man Steve Tallis, Spoonful of Blues takes in a veritable feast of different approaches to the genre, including swampy New Orleans blues, classic styles like Delta and Memphis blues, fusions like country, soul and gospel blues, and the fuzzed-out psychedelically tinged electric blues. Incorporating guitar and piano-based variations on the genre, Spoonful of blues offers up soulful tunes for a Monday night in the company of some of the greatest legends of music, as well as contemporary artists taking the genre to new audiences.

From down and dirty to the greatest heights of musical invention, if it sings it like it means it, it’s here on Spoonful of Blues.
