In the first hour of this week’s Saturday Night Blues, host Holger Petersen talks to rockabilly, blues and roots guitar player Jack De Keyzer.
De Keyzer has been a mainstay on the Toronto music scene for almost 30 years. He’s one of Canada’s most acclaimed blues and roots music artists and has performed and recorded with Ronnie Hawkins and King Biscuit Boy. He is also a two-time Juno award winner and winner of the Saturday Night Blues Great Canadian Blues Award.
In hour two, we have a concert by the Reba Russell Band, recorded last summer at the Edmonton Blues Festival. Russell is a soulful blues shouter from Memphis, who has recorded with Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, B.B. King and U2.
The Saturday Night Blues cover of the week features “Got My Mojo Workin',” originally recorded by Ann Cole, not Muddy Waters as is often assumed. Cole’s version is played back to back with the 2011 version recorded by Johnny Winter.
A listener, Dr. Utopia, calls in with a wonderful blues story and a request for some Magic Slim and the Teardrops.
