April 19/21

Crossroads continues the April feature, celebrating Chicago Blues Past and Present, with a special in hour two celebrating Chicago blues legend Muddy Waters in a concert performance with three former members of his band – John Primer, Paul Oscher, and Bob Margolin. We’ll hear music in the first hour from new albums by all three artists, along with selections from Muddy himself, from the Muddy Waters Tribute Band, and from Guy Davis.

Plus new blues releases and a preview of local and regional blues concerts in the coming week.
