Uncle Bardie’s Spotlight Creator: Pure Boogie

Once a week on Friday, Uncle Bardie celebrates the creativity in others by shining a Spotlight on a movie, a song or a creator. This week’s Spotlight Creator is no other than the boogiest, the woogiest of bands,  Little Feat:

Wanna boogie? Wanna get down? Well, I got the band for you. Little Feat, led by Lowell George, was one of those bands that made the seventies a fun place. They didn’t have an ounce of glamrock or disco in their bones. They just played the heck out of rock ‘n’ roll and stirred in some funk, some boogie, some blues, some gospel, some country and made it stand up on its head and rock. They might be an L.A. band but they could do Southern Rock as if they had drunk from the Mother of Rivers.

So check out and enjoy Lowell George and Little Feat. This is what boogie sounds like when it gets together with its old friend woogie.

Uncle Bardie’s Spotlight Creator: The Florida Folk Festival

Once a week on Friday, Uncle Bardie celebrates the creativity in others by shining a Spotlight on a movie, a song or a creator. This week’s Spotlight Creator is the art and artists of the Florida Folk Festival:

Once a year on Memorial Day Weekend, many Floridans bring their families to the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park for the Florida Folk Festival. This family affair is a heck of a get together on the banks of the Suwannee. Not only does it feature some great music and musicians. It also features much of the food and culture of the Sunshine State. Everything from folk dancing to circus culture to medicine shows to puppetry can be seen at the Festival. Every year is a different experience.
