Bobby Rush

Air date 02/10/13

This week, Larry Morrisey talks to legendary musician Bobby Rush.  Rush is the 2013 recipient of the Governor's Arts Awards  for Lifetime Achievement.   Bobby Rush has been thrilling audiences around the world with his bawdy, entertaining, flamboyant, and stellar showmanship.  He continues to be one of the most exciting and creative artists in the world.  Rush’s live shows are without parallel, replete with comedic sketches acted out with the assistance of members of his group.  In recent years he has re-established himself as an outstanding soloist and acoustic performer.  He was named by Living Blues Magazine as “Best Live Performer of the Year” in 1995, 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2000.  He has played an important role in Mississippi’s music scene for years, initially as a performer on the Southern-based chitlin circuit and then as a recording artist for the LaJam label.
