Woodsongs 711: JJ Grey & Mofro plus Slade Warnken

published 7 years ago by The Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour Vodcast

JJ GREY & MOFRO bring a grimy blend of front porch soul and down-home storytelling to the WoodSongs stage. Over the course of six albums and a decade of touring, he and his band Mofro have sewn a continuous thread of laying-it-on-the-line shows that move folks to dance and at times to tears. Many of Grey�s songs reflect his love for the North Florida wilderness in which he grew up. JJ's sixth studio album, 'This River'on Alligator Records was named for the St. John's River -- a centering point for his childhood near Jacksonville, Florida and features some of his strongest songwriting to date. SLADE WARNKEN is only 15 but has incredible bluesy voice. Listen as Slade brings down the house with his version of Otis Reddings "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay".
