June Blues New Releases

Friday, June 4 and Sunday, June 6

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:

  • The May feature continues a bit longer with music from the newly released 58 track/three CD 50th anniversary set from Alligator Records, plus
  • Maria Muldaur with New Orleans street band Tuba Skinny
  • New Orleans legend Big Chief Monk Boudreaux
  • Deb Ryder and an all-star cast together on her fifth studio album
  • Pittsburg blues duo Soulful Femme
  • And the Kenny Neal-produced new release from Patti Parks.

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.
