Kings of the Blues

Friday, December 31, and Sunday, January 3

We’ve got the Kings of the Blues this time at the Crossroads. Along with the legends B.B., Albert, Freddie and Earl King, we’ll hear music from Chris Thomas, Bnois, Marcus, and Claudette and Shirley (B.B.’s daughters). We’ll also hear the latest albums from Christone ‘Kingfish’ Ingram, the Jon Spear Band, Colin James, Eric Bibb, Zac Harmon, Ricci/Krown, Dave Specter, and Tito Jackson.

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.
