This Sunday is going to be all about the acoustic blues as it is influenced by the Piedmont Blues when Jackie Merritt and Resa Gibbs return to Hunter At Sunrise. Jackie and Resa are two thirds of the trio, M.S.G. Acoustic Blues Trio, which also includes Miles Spicer. Both are multi-instrumentalists.
According to Wikipedia, the Piedmont Blues is "characterized by a unique fingerpicking method on the guitar in which a regular, alternating-thumb bassline pattern supports a melody using the treble strings". It is roots music indigenous to the eastern seaboard from Richmond to Atlanta.
Jackie and Resa have been hunkered down just like the rest of us during this pandemic so it will be good to catch up with them. We hope you will join us as Jackie Merritt and Resa Gibbs return to Hunter At Sunrise this Sunday morning. To learn more about the M.S.G. Acoustic Blues Trio, click HERE.
Hunter at Sunrise: Our Music is a Voyage
Hunter At Sunrise can be heard every Sunday morning from 7-11am eastern on this site. Just click the player to listen. We here at Hunter At Sunrise believe that there is still great new music out there...that the spirit of discovery still exists especially on Sunday mornings. We believe that the majority of music these days is mired in the sounds of the past or caught in the repetition of new pop music that is performer and personality driven. Hunter At Sunrise is about the flow of morning music and not the angst of every day current events. It is a haven from the humdrum of the work-a-day week, a soundtrack for relaxing on a Sunday morning. We draw our playlist from the obscure past and the futuristic artists trying to stretch the boundaries of modern songwriting. We believe in Hampton Roads and the local music scene. We want to present live fresh music and have it last. Thanks so much for listening.
