Blues Piano + Ray Charles, Fenton Robinson, Mighty Joe Young & Roy Buchanan

September 22/24

Crossroads celebrates birthdays of bluesmen Fenton Robinson, Mighty Joe Young and Roy Buchanan, and soul legend Ray Charles (featured in a special in hour two of the show). We’ll also hear more great blues piano for the September feature, this time from Memphis Slim and Kenny ‘Blues Boss’ Wayne. And there’s new music from Duke Robillard and William Bell.
