Music Monday “Travelin’ Shoes” Elvin Bishop

Elvin Bishop was born in California, but at the age of 10 moved to the south.  It was in Tulsa, Oklahoma he fell in love with the “blues” by listening to the radio.  At the time, Tulsa was an all white city. The group caught its big break in 1971 when they did a series of concerts with the Allman Brothers at Fillmore East.

Bishop is known as a “white blues man” who tells corny jokes in concert.  Sounds authentic to this southern girl !  He has a presence even now on social media.   Check him out on Facebook!

 

Toe tapping, right?  Makes you want to dance?
