NORMAN JACKSON BAND
The Norman Jackson Band came to the 2016 International Blues Festival and shook the stages up and down Beale until on Saturday they were named the 3rd Place Band Challenger. I got to sit and talk to Rick Shortt and Norman about their journeys and how they came together, while we listened to It’s The Drummers Fault

In 1978 The Blues Brother’s Band was formed and became known throughout the world from the movie.

We listened to tunes from The Last Shade Of Blue Before Black.

Freddye is known as Pittsburgh’s Lady Of The Blues. She has been singing since she was a child and has earned her way to Memphis for the IBC twice. She and I talked about her finding the Blues and beginning her own bands and where she is heading while we listened to songs from Lady Of The Blues.
