This week we deliver you Alvin ‘Youngblood Hart’s Muscle Theory, recorded live at French Quarter Fest 2013. We sit down with Alvin to talk about growing up in Oakland, his authentic songwriting approach, and one of his greatest mentors who shares in his non-compromising talent, Clarence ‘Gatemouth’ Brown.
We also meet up with Tim Sweetwood of the Bowery Presents South to talk about their pursuit to bring unique modern entertainment into one of New Orleans' oldest theatres, the newly reopened Civic Theatre. From our hearts to your ears, enjoy.
You can catch Alvin Youngblood Hart next month at the Blues and BBQ Fest on October 19th! Also,this year's honoree at the Bogalusa Blues and Heritage Fest is Clarence ‘Gatemouth’ Brown. We'll be there live broadcasting so come say hi!
