The good news is that the blues is going to be smoking hot this weekend! And if you love women blues singers, this is the weekend for you.
Kicking things off on Friday night is the Lowcountry Blues Club's own Skye Paige & The Original Recipe at Fiery Ron's Hometeam BBQ. And for this gig, Skye has stacked the band with Lowcountry Blues Club members: Tommy Thunderfoot, Greg Levkus, and John Shafer. Wow, that is one powerful lineup.
Also on Friday night, the amazing Wanda Johnson will be taking the stage at A Dough Re Mi. Wanda Johnson has been called the new voice of soul in the Carolinas, and she's gonna prove it Friday night. If that wasn't enough, she's going to be backed by Lowcountry Blues Club's Shrimp City Slim.
And if that isn't enough for you, the Women in Blues festival kicks off Friday night in Wilmington, NC. But the real event at the Women In Blues Festival will be Saturday during their invitation only blues jam. At that prestigious blues jam, Cole Train will be one of the featured acts. In case you weren't in the know, Cole Train is another great band that has formed out of the Lowcountry Blues Club and features "Stone Cold" Sarah Cole, "Old Man" Tanner Cooper, and Nate "B' Good" Merli. These teens are the future of the blues and are already getting exposure on a national stage. Just how cool is that?
And if you don't get a chance to catch Wanda on Friday night, or just didn't get enough, Wanda's going to be playing Saturday night at JB Pivots too. Once again, she's going to backed up by the Godfather of the South Carolina blues scene, Shrimp City Slim and his band. Wanda always delivers and her shows are a blast.
Then on Sunday, Shrimp City Slim and Dr. Pickup (from France) will be playing at Pawley's Island Tavern.
