“Voodoo Woman”

Happy Monday, folks!  This will be a post that’s short on words but long on music—appropriate enough for the Monday Morning Blues.

Our musical offering today is Susan Tedeschi’s take on “Voodoo Woman,” a hit for the Queen of the Blues herself, Koko Taylor.  If you don’t know Tedeschi’s work, you must check her out—she’s a phenomenol guitarist & singer, as the video will attest.  In fact, she’ll certainly be making an appearance (date as yet to be determined) right here on the Any Woman’s Blues series—one big reason I’m going short on the background info today.

Stay tuned for lots of fun posts this week, & enjoy the music!

  1. Ah, I LOVE Susan! I've been a fan for pretty much her entire career; first saw her at the House of Blues in Cambridge just after she graduated from Berklee. In fact I went with some people who had gone to school with her at Berklee and insisted I come hear their classmate. If I remember correctly, she also played at all three of the Newport Rhythm & Blues Festivals, 1995 - 1997 (there were only three, unfortunately). She's a fantastic guitarist and singer!

  2. Hi Roy: Sounds like some great shows to me! Yes, she's a big time talent indeed.

  3. Never seen her live but she really is out there on her own, isn't she?

  4. Hi Dick: I've never seen her live either, tho I've followed her music for some time. She's good!
