Re: Friday Night Is Music Night on BBC4 TV

Friday 8th April  BBC4

Repeat showings, but a rare treat tonight for Bonnie Raitt fans:-

21:00 - BBC4 Sessions: Bonnie Raitt
Filmed at Stoke Newington Town Hall in north London, this career-spanning concert features Bonnie Raitt and her road-tested band in sparkling form.

Raitt started out supporting blues artists like Mississippi Fred McDowell, while championing the generation of singer-songwriters who emerged in the early 70s. She released her eponymously titled debut album in 1971 and her most recent album prior to this concert, Slipstream, came out in 2012.

This set roams across her career and includes signature songs like Love Has No Pride, Nick of Time and the bluesy Love Me Like a Man. The slide guitar-slinging, flame-haired queen of roots and blues rock is joined by frequent collaborator and songwriter Paul Brady on Marriage Made in Hollywood and there's even a bluesy romp through the old Elvis tune, A Big Hunk o' Love.

22:00 - 22:40 - Old Grey Whistle Test: Bonnie Raitt
Bob Harris introduces Bonnie Raitt in a special concert performance for the Old Grey Whistle Test from 1976.

wish I could get it, but might try looking on the Utube. You might remember that George (Amsterhammer) called her "The Goddess"

I've just checked and the good news is, both sessions are on Youtube; the "Whistle Test" is the full 40 mins and ther BBC4 session (from 2013) looks like the full show too.
