Blues with a Twist

Tuesdays, 7 p.m. - 10 p.m.

Join Jeanne, host of Blues with a Twist, every Tuesday night from 7 to 10 p.m. Enjoy a bit of jazz, something to get you rocking, and a heapin' helping of blues. She mixes original blues with a blend of contemporary music and an occasional return to the vintage 1940's. Your requests are welcomed and encouraged!

"Blues, juice and Jazz!" - Jeanne Kelly

If you're in Clarksdale, Miss., home of the Delta blues, everybody says you have to go to Red's juke joint. The hole-in-the-wall club is the real deal. It's just a small room, a few tables and a fridge full of beer. Red lights are strung around a low ceiling. On the night we visit, octogenarian Leo "Bud" Welch plays in the center of the room, hunched over a sparkly, hot pink, electric guitar. Red Paden, the owner, sits out front, surveying from behind the bar.

It’s Mardi Gras time.  Get out your white hanky and get ready to strut to some New Orleans Music.  Join us, Jeanne Kelly and Sister Mary, for that special second line beat on Fat Tuesday, February 28, 2017.

7:00 p.m. on WFIT 89.5 FM and streaming live at WFIT.org

How’s your love life? Stevie Ray Vaughn can answer that question.   Are you a victim of unrequited love?  Perhaps you need Derek and the Dominoes.  Do you need a second chance?  Maybe Solomon Burke can help.  Does the direct approach work best for you?  If so - Muddy Waters is your man. 

Tune in this Tuesday @ 7:00 PM and SisterMary and Jeanne may jump start your heart.

Fiery soul-blues guitarist Damon Fowler was born and raised in Brandon, Florida, just outside of Tampa. He first picked up a guitar at the age of 12, and after being shown a few chords, quickly developed an affinity for the instrument. He also fell in love with the blues, and he was soon gigging regularly in small clubs in the Tampa Bay Area.
