Ronnie Earl is a three-time Blues Music Award winner as “Guitar
Player of the Year,” and was the hit of the most-recent Blues Music Awards show in Memphis with his show-stopping live performance of the Junior Wells classic, “In the Wee Hours.”
Earl follows that up with the August 30 release of the latest CD from the blues guitar master and his band, the Broadcasters, Beyond the Blue Door. Ronnie Earl believes in the power of music to heal the mind and spirit, and that’s quickly evident in the 15 tracks on his new disc. Special guests on the new album include David Bromberg, acoustic
guitar and vocals; Kim Wilson, harmonica and vocals; Greg Piccolo,
tenor sax; Anthony Geraci, piano; and Peter Ward, guitar.
Beyond the Blue Door confirms Earl’s status as one of the most
soulful blues/soul/jazz guitarists working today. He’s also a DownBeat
magazine winner for “Blues Album of the Year,” an Associate
Professor of Guitar at Berklee College of Music and has taught at the
National Guitar summer workshop in Connecticut.
