Jackie Merritt and Resa Gibbs combine their talents to bring acoustic blues back to Hunter At Sunrise this Sunday

Jackie and Resa oneThis 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.

This will be the first visit of Jeff to Hunter at Sunrise, but Larry has been on the show a number of times accompanying Seth Stainback, Julie Clark, Little Doors and as part of his own, Larry Berwald and Friends.

Hunter At Sunrise continues with live guests this Sunday when the Ben Phelps Project visits

Ben Phelps ProjectIt's our second Sunday of live guests and we're welcoming members of the Ben Phelps Project to the show.  The Smithfield based band was supposed to visit right after the release of their critically acclaimed album, Wake Up the Guards,  but the pandemic had other ideas.  So we're making up for it with a live acoustic session this Sunday.  We will be social distancing as we did last weekend and we appreciate the band being patient, allowing us to work out the details for this interview.  Hope you will join us as the Ben Phelps Project comes to Hunter At Sunrise this Sunday morning.  For more about the Ben Phelps Project, click HERE. 

Hunter At Sunrise returns to live shows AND live guests this Sunday when the duo Dry Land visits

Dry Land DuoYes, it has been since early March since we've had guests come to the studio to be on the show.  The pandemic did a number on our live acoustic sessions, but this Sunday all that changes as the Norfolk duo, Dry Land, visits Hunter At Sunrise.  Dry Land is Kate and Drew Landman and they have been on the show before as part of the band House of Cards. We will be social distancing of course, taking extra steps to be safe from the virus.  But we are very excited to present live music on the radio once again.  Hope you will join us as Dry Land visits Hunter At Sunrise this Sunday.
