Charles Brown, Ray Charles, Fenton Robinson and Mighty Joe Young

Friday, September 23, and Sunday, September 25

Crossroads marks the birthday of the legendary Ray Charles, who was influenced early in his career by our September featured artist Charles Brown. We also celebrate birthdays of two Chicago blues masters – Fenton Robinson and Mighty Joe Young. There’s new music from Diunna Greenleaf, Silent Partners, and Shemekia Copeland.
