A Blues Artist Tribute

January 19/21

This week at the Crossroads as part of the January feature looking back at the past year in blues, a tribute to artists who passed away in 2017 – including last albums from both Gregg Allman and Chuck Berry; music from Fats Domino and from a Domino tribute album that included a track from Tom Petty; also James Cotton, Lonnie Brooks, Leo ‘Bud’ Welch, soul singer Charles Bradley, and guitarist Howard Carroll of the gospel group the Dixie Hummingbirds.

We also highlight an Allman Brothers cover of an Elmore James song, as part of the January Elmore James Centennial Birthday feature; and in hour two, a special in tribute to CeDell Davis, who passed away last year, and R.L. Boyce, one of this year’s blues Grammy nominees.
