XPN welcomes legendary blues musician Charlie Musselwhite to The Sellersville Theater tonight. Over his almost 50-year career, Musselwhite has released over 20 records in addition to collaborating on efforts by Bonnie Raitt, Tom Waits and others. Following the success of his 1966 debut, the 2010 Blues of Fame inductee moved to San Francisco where he and his unique blues-harp playing stood out against the counterculture backdrop. Most recently, Musselwhite collaborated with Ben Harper for 2012′s Get Up!. Tickets and information for tonight’s all-ages show with Deb Callahan can be found here. Below, watch Musselwhite perform “Blues Why Do You Worry Me?” live.
WXPN’s Twelve Days of Local Christmas continues today with the song “Baby’s First Christmas” by blues/soul and rock and roller Deb Callahan. Callahan has been a mainstay of the blues scene here and throughout the region since the 90′s when she began performing live. She released her debut album in 2002 and is currently working on her fifth album, to be released next year. The 12 Days of Local Christmas compilation is curated by XPN mid-day host Helen Leicht and the songs will be played daily during My Morning Download on the Morning Show with Michaela Majoun and on Helen’s local pick of the day. You can download the entire Twelve Days of Local Christmas compilation here. Deb performs tonight at The Twisted Tale Bourbon Bar & Juke Joint. Below, download the very soulful “Baby’s First Christmas.”
