Those couple of weeks I was unable to put the music blog list up I missed several Unsung Heroes of the Blues Guitar articles by musician Peter Parcek. This weeks article is on Jimmy Nolan but if you have a few minutes check out some of the others as well.
Linda Leinen (shoreacres) from The Task at Hand was in Iowa, Louisiana at the spring Rabbit Festival for food, fun and Zydeco music.
Okay, I have tempted fate and my connection long enough and the thought of roasted rabbit is making me hungry. If I missed your post and you would like me link to it please drop a comment on the post or send me an email at guitarkit at gmail dot com

Michael Barwise interviewed 17 yr old singer/songwriter Nina Nesbitt on Michael’s Music Madness.
Damian interviewed Frank Turner on the Mostless Harmless podcast show:
Frank was kind enough to sit down with me and talk about his early music years and the roads that brought him to becoming a singer song writer. We talk about his upcoming plans for world domination and the daunting task of filling London’s Wembley Stadium…”
Casey Ragan over on American Blues News took on the monumental task of reviewing Omar and the Howlers Essential Collection.
Musician Peter Parcek profiles Hollywood Fats in Unsung Heroes of the Blues Guitar.
Sheryl Bryant at the Raleigh Music Industry Association gets her Piedmont blues on with an article and concert review of blues musician ‘Boo’ Hanks:
His brand of acoustic guitar playing, sometimes known as “frailing” is indicative of an older technique of guitar and banjo “pickin” whereby Boo’s thumb picks the bass sound while his forefinger picks out the melody on the treble strings. The unique and rhythmic sound creates the illusion that two guitars are being played when in reality it is just one lone acoustic guitar and his master at work…”
More Piedmont blues as Autopsy IV from ninebullets.net reviewed the new Charlie Parr album, Keep Your Hands on the Plow.
Walter Trout discussed his upcoming new release, Blues for the Modern Daze, in a youtube video.

So, I was in the mood for some blues and whoosh – blues appeared. Other people get coupons, bills and news updates in the mail while I get blues music. Cool new blues music in the form of the debut release Telegraph Taboo from the Chicago-based band Nick and the Ovorols. This is not a pretty album. The vocals on a few tracks [...]
