Blues Legend Albert King, Rev. Gary Davis and Otis Rush

Friday, April 28, and Sunday April 30

Crossroads wraps up the April centennial birthday feature for blues legend Albert King.

This time we also mark birthdays of blues guitar great Otis Rush and gospel blues legend the Reverend Gary Davis. In hour two, we’ll head to the Fur Peace Ranch for a tribute to Davis with performances from Jorma Kaukonen, Roy Book Binder, and Ernie Hawkins.
