October New Blues Releases

Friday, October 2 and Sunday, October 4

It’s “New Month/New Music” time as Crossroads teams up with Global Village and Strange Currency at the beginning of every month to feature the best in new blues releases.

Among the highlights this time:

  • Blues veterans Elvin Bishop and Charlie Musselwhite together
  • Soul blues hitmaker John Nemeth
  • Soulman Sonny Green
  • Johnny Iguana’s Chicago Spectacular
  • And a raft of new titles from blues women, including Fiona Boyes, Lisa Mann, Laura Tate, Vanessa Collier, and Nora Jean Wallace.

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.
