#55 - Chicken Raid 2011 Preview Show with MUDCAT and Beverly “Guitar” Watkins
MUDCAT (Danny Dudek) and Georgia Music Hall of Fame Inductee Beverly "Guitar" Watkins join us in the studio to promote this year's annual CHICKEN RAID Festival at The Northside Tavern this Saturday & Sunday (3/19-3/20). MUDCAT, who we consider to be Atlanta's Blues Ambassador, is the brainchild behind the Chicken Raid Honoring Mr. Frank Edwards, and makes his 3rd appearance on our show (Thanks, Danny!). Ms. Beverly Watkins is an Atlanta Blues, Soul, and R&B Legend, but is world renowned. From her bio: "Watkins set fire to the stage with Piano Red in the 1950’s and 1960’s, worked with James Brown, B.B. King and Ray Charles, kept the heat going in Atlanta blues clubs for decades, and she is not about to give up her striding, acrobatic style just because she’s marched past 70."
