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:

A new solo set from Stax legend Steve Cropper

Chicago blueswoman Joanna Connor continuing her fiery comeback

The Alligator label debut of veteran blues guitarist Chris Cain

And the latest Blues Caravan lineup with Whitney Shay, Jeremiah Johnson, and Ryan Perry.

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.
