#FunFactFriday blues singer/songwriter Joe Cocker is credited with bringing the concept of “air guitar” playing to the public. The memorable incident took place in 1969 on the stage in Bethel, NY at the Woodstock Music Fair. Cocker lifted his arms in perfect time as if playing the first chords of his hit “With a Little Help From My Friends.”

Though there had been cases of playing the air guitar in the past (in the 1860s it was associated with mental illness) it didn’t enter the public eye until after Cocker’s performance. In fact, it was so uncommon that The New York Times even described his air guitar as “unusual gesturing.” #funfact #airguitar #joecocker #woodstock #newyorktimes #withalittlehelp #singer #songwriter #music #publishing #guitar #rock

#ModernMondays In the mood for some country music, take a listen to Blake Shelton's rendition of "Tequila Sheila," written by Shel Silverstein and Mac Davis! Though Shelton's version was released in 2019 on his "Fully Loaded: God's Country" album, "Tequila Sheila" was a Top 40 country hit in 1980 for Bobby Bare.

“One of the coolest things I’ve been able to do in my career is be a little selfish along the way and be able to record some songs that I grew up loving. I recorded this song and didn’t really have a plan for it, I just wanted to have my own version." -Bake Shelton #blakeshelton #country #countrymusic #cover #bobbybare #tequilasheila #shelsilverstein #modern #fullyloaded #godscountry #music #publishing

08/31/2021

This TRO Tuesday, we shine the spotlight on gospel and folk singer, Bessie Jones; one of the most important traditional singers of the mid-20th century,

Growing up in the Gullah-Geechee traditions of rural Georgia, Bessie Jones absorbed music through her family. In adulthood, she doted on the children in her community by teaching them the stories, games, and spiritual music she’d inherited—history that was theirs, too.

Determined to share with future generations and communicate her lessons to further reaches, in 1961 she travelled 1,000 miles to ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax’s New York apartment and told him to document her music and life history.

Take a listen to some of Bessie Jones’ most memorable songs.
