Erin Harpe and The Delta Swingers  are going to the International Blues Challenge 2010 in Memphis.

Erin Harpe and The Delta Swingers won the blues challenge at Johnny D’s. They’re going to Memphis along with the duo act Cindy Daily and Satch Romano. I heard a new band there “ThrowDown” and man they were wild, wild enough to get me on the dance floor. Thank you Gracie for joining me. All the bands were great and I kn ow it had to have been a wicked hard decision to make. Blues like I like it. Thank you all!

Congratulations to Erin Harpe and The Delta Swingers and Driving Blind for winning the first round.  It was an excellent night of music five bands playing all types of blues. Second round goes to Gracie Curran and the High Falutin Band  and The Throwdown Blues Band.  The Lois Greco Band will be in the last day of competitions as well. I am so looking forward to this.

Roaring Mary, a Celtic music trio with guest musicians who appear at the Pleasant St. Tea Co. on the first, third, and (when applicable) fifth Fridays of every month, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Roaring Mary consists of Lin Swicker on guitar, banjo, and mandolin, Steve Levy on banjo, guitar, and mandolin, and vocals, and David de la Barre on whistle, Scottish small pipes, concertina and vocals. They do traditional music from the British Isles–Scotland, Ireland, Britain, and Wales. Invited guests join them each time for additional tunes and songs. They have a Facebook page, Roaring Mary, with graphics etc.

It’s a great time and very cool for kids as well as adults in a venue that is not a bar, appropriate for all ages. Hope to see you there!

Thanks for all you do here Joey, it’s a great website!!
