Bluesman Lew Jetton Live on Juke Joint Shuffle this Saturday

  • Here's a preview of Lew Jetton's live set.

This week on the Juke Joint Shuffle, bluesman Lew Jetton drops by for a live in-studio set.  Lew and his band, 61 South, are regional favorites playing Summer festivals and clubs around the WKMS listening area.

Listeners may also remember Lew & 61 South for their annual appearances at Kenlake’s Hot August Blues Festival, where Juke Joint co-hosts Rick Nance and John Griffin got to know them.

Lew and his guitar will sit down to shoot the breeze with the boys and play a few of his songs.  His deep growling voice is a perfect match for his self-penned songs, which have appeared on two CDs so far:  State Line Blues and Tales from a 2 Lane. During the Summer of 2011, a couple of those numbers were in circulation on XM Radio.

Following Lew at the Juke Joint in the next few weeks will be roots musician Ted Belew and singer-songwriter Lane Davis.  Be sure to drop by the Juke Joint every Saturday from 1 to 3, and the boys will hit the shuffle button to see what we hear.
