Studio Sessions: Bonnie Raitt in Studio on Talk of the Nation with Neal Conan – 07/05/2006
Nine-time Grammy winner Bonnie Raitt is well-known for her soul-stirring slide guitar, her commanding voice, and her famous mop of red hair. She writes some of her own songs, but often features material from blues icons, from her own band members, and from some songwriters who aren’t as well-known. Her most recent album, her 18th, is called Souls Alike.
Raitt performs songs from Souls Alike and chats with callers, live from NPR’s Washington studios. She talks about her music, her career, and the interplay between her work as an artist and her social activism.
Before Bonnie there’s the News for about 6 min.
