Crossroads joins in with Global Village and Strange Currency to celebrate the birthday of Taj Mahal. We’ll hear tracks from across his career in hour one and a special concert performance from him in hour two.

Plus more blues drummers for the May feature, including Sam Lay (with Howlin’ Wolf and the Butterfield Blues Band) and Kenny ‘Beedy Eyes’ Smith (son of Muddy Waters band drummer Willie ‘Big Eyes’ Smith) from his new album.

And there’s new music from Reese Wynans, Watermelon Slim, and Big Al & the Heavyweights, along with blues artists with regional concert dates in the coming week.
