Susan Tedeschi is one of today’s most successful and renowned blues performers. Not only is she married to one of America’s most beloved and skilled blues performers, Derek Trucks, she too has become a permanent and beloved fixture of the genre. Susan Tedeschi’s band, the Tedeschi Trucks Band was founded in 2010 and originated in Jacksonville Florida.
One of my favorite videos is of Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks performing backstage at the Whitehouse February 21, 2012. Listen to Susan’s quintessential blues voice as she sings a classic blues song written by Muddy Waters, “Rollin’ and Tumblin’.” I love hearing unplugged acoustic performances like this. It brings a more personal element that you don’t get with an electric full blown concert experience. This event at the Whitehouse was called the Red, White, and Blues event.
