#SupportPGHMusic // Exclusively on HughShows Radio streaming at the bottom of the page, enjoy the entire December 13, 2014 concert of HughShows Live at Eide’s Finale featuring mini sets from acoustic and solo versions of my favorite Pittsburgh bands during the marathon 6 hour concert. //
“Maggie is a a Louisiana grown soulful sweetheart who’s raspy vocals are
as mystifying as the of the Voo Doo portrayed in the amazing music video
for her single, “Neutral Ground.”  The 9 minute video not only
showcases Maggie’s blues infused music, but also the magical world of
the Southern swamps.  Alongside releasing the music video, this rising
star was recently featured on Bravo’s Top Chef New Orleans theme song
and is currently touring with funk and jazz jam band Galactic.  Maggie’s
wetland story accompanied with her fresh, genre-defying sound is sure
to captivate audiences of all sorts.”
Check Maggie out at her official Website, Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram. Maggie’s new album, “Neutral Ground” is available now and I want to thank her for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

The ones ruined by rude & chatty audiences, intoxicated & unprofessional
musicians or my vertical challenges.

Any thoughts, experiences about
Pittsburgh?

I’ve only played there once before with Galactic on 6/2/13 at Hartwood Acres
for their summer concert series. I had an incredible time. It was beautiful out
there, and we started our set as the sun was going down. The audience was so
vast and full of good energy. We had a fine time dancing all night.

Thanks, Maggie. Hartwood Acres is the best. Free music in a beautiful setting. Really can’t beat that.
