Blues Harmonica Legend Charlie Musselwhite

Friday, January 31 and Sunday, February 2

Crossroads marks the birthday of blues harp legend Charlie Musselwhite in a special edition of the show for his January 31 birthday. We’ll hear music from his debut album to later releases under his own name, and we’ll check out some of the many guest appearances he has made over the years, including with George Thorogoood & the Destroyers, John Lee Hooker, Eric Bibb, Boz Scaggs, Elvin Bishop and more. Then in hour two, it’s a special featuring Musselwhite in concert.

Chris Heim produces and hosts Global Village, a nationally and internationally distributed world music show; the nightly jazz show Night Train, and Crossroads, KMUW’s twice-weekly blues and R&B show. Chris is also a critic and freelance writer whose work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Utne, Global Rhythm, Dirty Linen, and Option, among others.
