blues

In the summer of 2011 as I was preparing to launch a new Saturday night Blues show on WYEP, I was trying to decide what the name of the show should be.

Rollin and Tumblin is one of the earliest and most influential blues songs ever written and recorded. The song was written by Hambone Willie Newbern and was first recorded by Newbern in 1929.

Programming note for Aug 31, 2019. Rollin and Tumblin will not be on the radio on Saturday August 31, 2019 due to the Labor Day Weekend Countdown.

Hey! We're pretty excited about our new specialty show blogs and features.

Not Necessarily The Blues. But if you are a fan of Rollin And Tumblin, you might enjoy the Wood Brothers.

 

July 7

Love Pittsburgh Music Month continues in July on Rollin & Tumblin, each week we’ll feature a Pittsburgh Blues artist with a deeper look at their work with one song each hour.

Rollin And Tumblin is a three hour tour through history of electric and acoustic Blues. It's Saturday night so expect up tempo, hard hitting cuts by pioneers like Muddy Waters, Koko Taylor and Howlin Wolf alongside brand new Blues from contemporary artists like Walter Trout, Ana Popovic and Keb Mo.  

Plus we highlight the many talented local artists making the Pittsburgh Blues scene.

Along the way you'll learn a little about the artists, the songs and The Blues.
