February New Blues Releases

Friday, February 4 and Sunday, February 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 return of Bernard Allison, son of blues legend Luther Allision
  • Louisiana bluesman Big Al and the Heavyweights
  • Louisiana Red & Bob Corritore, the latest in Corritore’s “From the Vault” series
  • A new release from British blues-rock pioneer John Mayall
  • And blues-rock firebrand Eric Gales
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.
