Country Boogie Woogi

Country Boogie Woogie

While the origin of the term is in debate, there are numerous stories that almost make sense but cannot be verified. However, 20th century blues, country and rock and roll were rife with the reference and it turned into a guitar lick, a piano run, and a salty reference on the standup. Deeper Roots will be spending time with the country versions, inherited (nee appropriated) from the rhythm and blues form … and a little bit of history as well. We’ve got the classic country sounds of Sheb Wooley, Johnny Tyler, and The Delmore Brothers paired up with higher octane country Americana from Dale Watson, Robert Gordon, and Asleep at the Wheel. Chuck Berry once said “It used to be called boogie-woogie, it used to be called blues, used to be called rhythm & blues…it’s called rock now”. You can quote me in enlightening that observation by calling it “one nascent stream that emptied into a swift river.” Tune in Friday evenings here on Sonoma County Community Radio.
