Bonnie Bishop "Done Died"

It's Sunday, and so we have the perfect song for today. When last I saw Bonnie Bishop, she was performing at the AmericanaFest Gospel Brunch at City Winery Nashville this past September. Come to think of it, the time before that, Bonnie was performing in the Mission Temple Fireworks Revival, with Paul Thorn, The McCrary Sisters and Blind Boys of Alabama at The Franklin Theatre this summer. As it turns out, Paul and company are playing Mountain Stage today. Also look for the upcoming special that Mississippi Public Television filmed of the Franklin Theatre Show. By the way, Paul Thorn has a new Gospel album coming out after the first of the year, and he has amassed a rip roaring cast to share in bringing the good word. (Remember this gospel song we filmed with Paul?)

Bonnie Bishop kicks up the joy every time she sings, and she has a special gift for Gospel infused rockers. She is about to head across the pond to tour in Europe for November, before heading back to Austin for a gig at 3Ten ACL Live on December 1. Ya gotta see her play live! Here is Bonnie from a Music Fog session at 3rd & Lindsley Backstage in Nashville with “Done Died.”

Robben Ford "Rose of Sharon"

I first became acquainted with Robben Ford’s music when I was on the radio in Orlando, at WMMO, in the 90's. Cary Pall was the Program Director and he was a musical wizard with his ear to the ground. I learned a lot from him about seeing one’s way to the heart of the music. In essence, his approach to programming radio was akin to painting a room with sounds for the radio audience to “live in.” The year was 1992, the album was Robben Ford & The Blue Line, and particularly noteworthy, was his cover of John Hiatt’s “I’m a Real Man.” It soared and shook with color, sexuality, and confidence. I have been watching and listening to Robben ever since.

Photo Credit: George WellsHis is a versatile and interesting career, which included stints with the likes of Joni Mitchell to Kiss to Miles Davis. Now who does that? Interesting, that Miles is quoted as saying,"It’s not the notes you play, it’s the notes you don’t play.” Robben Ford embodies that. He is ever elegant in his vocal delivery and in licks. Well, hell, you’ll see here.

Music Fog was honored to film Robben Ford in January of 2016 during a private session at 3rd & Lindsley Backstage in Nashville. He performed “Rose of Sharon," which you can find on his 2015 album, Into The Sun. Here is the Music Fog recording...enjoy.
