Volume 6 arrives: The acclaimed Live Bootleg Series from Friday Music — featuring quintessential live cuts selected by Johnny himself — continues with the release of Volume 6. The latest offering finds the guitar hero putting his unmistakable stamp on some of his favorite tunes: Ray Charles’ “Blackjack” (still a staple of Johnny’s current live repertoire); Freddie King’s “Sen-Sa-Shun”; and an epic, nearly 15-minute reading of B.B. King’s “It’s My Own Fault.” For a complete track listing, and to learn more about the previous installments in this series, click here.
On the road: Johnny will tune it up tonight for a sold-out audience at the Tupelo Music Hall in Londonderry, New Hampshire. He’ll then be off the road until next weekend, when he plays Higher Ground in South Burlington, Vermont (Friday, Feb. 12) and Mill Street Brews in Southbridge, Massachusetts (Saturday, Feb. 13). Other gigs this month include the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel in Niagara Falls, New York (Feb. 19) and the Palace Theatre in Stamford, Connecticut (Feb. 20). (Johnny will be appearing in Stamford with the Debbie Davies Band.) These shows will be Johnny’s last U.S. performances until April; he’ll spend the entire month of March on a 17-date swing through Europe.
