Though rootsier acoustic music seems to be almost trendy now (it’s a “fad” that seems to come around every 15 years or so), the local organization Queen City Balladeers has been celebrating and nurturing Folk and Americana music for decades in the Queen City. Next year will mark the Balladeers’ 50th anniversary; this Friday, the 49th annual EdenSong concert series returns to Eden Park.

Tobe Donohue, producer and founder of world-renowned turntable crew Animal Crackers) in an Electronic duo configuration.

Last year, officials in Marshall, Texas, declared its city the birthplace of Boogie Woogie music. But 13 years ago, local pianist Ricky Nye started a tradition that has made Greater Cincinnati (or, more precisely, Newport, Ky.) one of the premiere active hubs in the U.S. for the rolling, rollicking American style of Blues/R&B music that dates back to the late 1800s.

It is unusual when the album is nearly two years old and the band has to fly in from France for the shows. For Boogie Woogie Blues piano master Ricky Nye, the CD release hoopla is turning out exactly the way he envisioned it, if slightly after the fact.
