Boogie Woogie Favorites From Kelley Hunt

Saturday, July 11

This week on New Settlers' Radio Hour we hear from R&B favorite Kelley Hunt and her band from their performance at the Old Settlers Inn.  Kelley was born and raised in Kansas and continues to live in Lawrence though she spends a lot of her time touring the U.S. and the world.  Kelley's distinctive "boogie woogie" piano style can be traced to her beloved early piano teacher and subject of her song "Queen of the 88s", Mary Burke Norton.

Check out a live performance of "Queen of the 88s" below:
