Redbone’s career first gained momentum in the early ‘70s when Bob Dylan sought him out at the Mariposa Folk Festival. In a Rolling Stone interview, Dylan mentioned that if he ever started a label, Redbone would be the first artist he wanted to record. Most folks were introduced to the man during his network debut on Saturday Night Live in 1976, where he showcased his indelible version of “Walkin’ Stick.” In a year typified by amplified arena rock, Redbone’s intimate, low-key delivery proved to be a jolting antonym. Since then he’s played numerous talk shows, and functioned as a favorite guest of Johnny Carson.
If there is one common element to Redbone’s diverse music it’s his mastery of his acoustic guitar. It is easy to get lost in his stage exploits (which often gravitate between vaudeville and performance art) and overlook what a truly fine player he is – finger picking with a ragtime bounce of jumping between chords with the grace of a hurdler. (Maybe the analogy should be with the grace of a card shark, because he makes it look so effortless it can often be deceiving.)

Being able to hold the price is due in part to the support of our new Sponsor – Dan Aykroyd Wines DanAykroydWines.com – for which we are very grateful and we welcome them on board. 101.9 DAWG FM Ottawa www.dawgfm.com also continues as a Sponsor and again, we are very grateful for their support.
