Howlin’ Wolf, Eddie Shaw & Hubert Sumlin

Friday, June 11, and Sunday, June 13

Throughout June, Crossroads is celebrating the 111th birthday of Chicago blues legend Howlin’ Wolf. In this edition of the show we’ll hear some classic tracks from Wolf and covers of his songs, and music from two of his band members who went on to their own later careers – saxophonist Eddie Shaw and guitarist Hubert Sumlin. A special in hour two features Sumlin, highlighting music he did with Wolf and also as a leader and guest.
