Blues Siblings – Sacred Steel

Friday, April 9 and Sunday, April 11

In conjunction with the April Siblings feature, Crossroads highlights some sibling bands rooted in the sacred steel gospel tradition. We’ll hear music from Robert Randolph & the Family Band, the Campbell Brothers, and the Lee Boys (including a concert special featuring the Lee Boys in hour two of the show).

Crossroads also celebrates the birthday of soul-jazz organ man Reuben Wilson with some of the more bluesy tracks he’s recorded, and highlights new releases from Dave Alvin and Damon Fowler.

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.
