Blues Birthdays – Marcia Ball & More + Blues Music Awards And Igor Prado

Friday, March 18, and Sunday, March 20

This time at the Crossroads we mark the birthdays of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Wilson Pickett, Eddie Shaw, Jimmie Vaughan, Big Daddy Kinsey, and Marcia Ball (who is featured in a special in hour two of the show).

We also continue our month-long look at this year’s Blues Music Awards nominees, including Vanessa Collier, Jimmy Carpenter, and Bob Corritore, along with more music from Brazilian bluesman Igor Prado, also featured this month.

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.
