King, Keb Mo, and more to celebrate 2012’s Black History Month. A stand-out performance from the night features Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, and Warren Haynes doing a stunning rendition of “I’d Rather Go Blind” by Etta James, alongside the White House band featuring Booker T Jones, who acted as bandleader for the night’s series.The three musicians complement one another incredibly in this blues number, as Tedeschi and Haynes exchange vocal harmonies and Trucks showcases his effortless slide-guitar playing – smiles, and goosebumps, all around.Also, check out Trombone Shorty performing “St. James Infirmary” in The White House’s East Wing:last_img
