For this week's special encore episode we listen back to a show recorded at The Clay Center in Charleston, W.Va. in 2009 during FestivALL Charleston.

Blues music icon and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Buddy Guy joined us in 2009 with songs from his then-newly release studio album Skin Deep. The title track, featured here as our Song of the Week, is a thoughtful ballad that features Guy playing his bluesy style on an electric sitar.

Elsewhere on the show we hear more great blues flavored tunes from the modern day Queen of the Blues Shemekia Copeland, some jump blues from Duke Robillard, and a house-rockin' performance by Chicago blues mainstays Lil' Ed & the Blues Imperials.

Tune in on one of these public radio stations, and check out the playlist for the songs you'll hear.

This episode was taped during FestivALL Charleston back in 2009. This year Mountain Stage kicks off the 2021 summer festival THIS SUNDAY with guest host Kathy Mattea.
