Bill Carter & The Blame
July 26, 2012
Part documentary, part performance, this episode of Arts in Context features Texas music legend Bill Carter. Carter and his wife, Ruth Ellsworth, write songs–an incredible amount of songs–including some of the biggest hits by The Fabulous, Thunderbirds, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Bill Carter & The Blame is a Texas supergroup with a rotating all-star lineup who have been performing Bill and Ruth’s songs for decades. Arts In Context combines Bill Carter & The Blame footage from a 2012 live performance in KLRU’s legendary Studio 6A with interviews of Bill, Ruth, and a selection of the musicians and people they have worked with over the years.
