Mac Arnold

"We've got the king of the gas can guitar - and one of our favorite blues singers, Mac Arnold & his band Plate Full of Blues playing live for us last month in advance of a string of shows in our area, Said Kim Clark. "Also, we'll listen to a session with Alexa Rose, who won a first-place Chris Austin songwriting award at this past Merlefest. She'll perform her prize-winning song plus preview a forthcoming album slated to be released this fall."

Our favorite blues singer/bassist/gas can guitarist from Pelzer, SC returns to Studio B this week! It's always a blast catching up with Mac about his memories of playing with Muddy Waters and James Brown back in the day, and all the various projects he and his band are involved with here in the Carolinas these days.  Their upcoming gigs  include Sierra Nevada on Wednesday, the Spinning Jenny on Friday, and Sparkle City Rhythm & Ribs in Spartanburg on Saturday the 1st.
