Who can forget when Trudy Lynn sang the blues for us at last year’s Westsylvania Festival? No one who was there will surprised to know that Lynn has been nominated for a 2017 Blues Foundation Koko Taylor Award. Her latest release, I’ll Sing the Blues for You, finds her singing, screaming, and sweating through covers of tracks by Big Mama Thornton (“Alright Baby”), Lowell Fulsom (“Black Knight”), and Johnny Copeland (“Down On Bended Knee”), and many more—and includes the Lynn original “Thru Chasin’ You.”
Choice track: “Thru Chasin’ You”
Westsylvania Albums of the Month are (mostly) new releases from artists who have played the festival. Check back next month for more!
