Blind Raccoon has been so fortunate to work all these projects in 2017. Many thanks to our artists and to the radio, media and fans that have supported the music. Long may it continue! And a big thanks to our teammates - Ashley Caldwell, Rick J Bowen, Jen Taylor, Debra Clark, Sallie Bengtson, Kim Stovall and, last, but by no means least, Ms. Minnie!

Jim Gustin and Truth Jones will be closing the showcase on Wednesday, 1/17. This Southern California duo released their second album, "Memphis," in 2017.

In his Elmore Magazine CD review, Jim Hynes describes listening to their music as "one of those nice surprises when an unfamiliar artist/band just grabs you by the throat and won’t let go."

You can see for yourself at the showcase!

Performing at the showcase on Wednesday, 1/17 and Thursday, 1/18, this trio is led by Louie Hurwitz, who was christened "Professor Louie" by Rick Danko after his many years of friendship and collaboration with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, THE BAND.

Straight out of Woodstock, NY, the Professor Louie Trio plays a blend of blues, rock, R&B, gospel, and folk. Come and see why the midwestrecord.com calls them "a killer crew that certainly knows a thing or two about Americana and where it came from."

Our third performer on Wednesday, Kathy Murray & the Kilowatts, will also be representing the Austin Blues Society at #IBC2018 in the solo/duo category. Their 2017 release, "Let's Do This Thing" is also entered for the 2018 Best Self-Produced CD award.

As Tim Stegall notes in his Austin Chronicle CD review, Kathy & The Kilowatts are "contemporaries of every hallowed name in Austin's Seventies/Eighties blues boom" and "understand the form's vocabulary as well as any..."

Catch this act for a taste of the many Texas regional roots sounds that have influenced their style!
