    We are still working out details and dates and whatnot but Rick Holmstrom, Paul Pigat and Kirk Fletcher have all agreed to be interviewed by Tom and play with the house band at Premier Music for his "Tom Harkenriders BluesCast" web show that we started last month with drummer Paul Fasulo!

    Paul Pigat is still in the "to be confirmed" column because we are working around the Winter NAMM show schedule but if the details work out he's on board!

    The shows can be watched live via our uStream.tv channel, recorded after the fact or if you are in the area you can attend in person! You can ask questions via the live webchat during the webcast if you aren't in the studio that day...

    Here's a small bit on each guy:

    :D

    I think it's going to be pretty damn cool. It's free to get in but I hope folks buy a CD or something from these guys. Also, we might have some guests coming to jam with us on Thursday nights every once in a while.

    That Mavis album was recorded about 5 minutes from my house. Holmstrom is a nice guy and a great player, he made a few records for a label my wife used to work for.

    Speaking of Lynwood Slim, will he ever come back to Premier to teach Blues Singing and Harmonica? (I am serious. No harp jokes.)

    I'm not sure. He travels quite a bit and it's hard to make a schedule work....
