Music for kids and their adults
Acoustic, Americana and Roots
Two blues icons originate right here in Minnesota: the Mississippi River and Highway 61, aka the "Blues Highway". This episode of The Current Presents is called "Blues Highway", and it's an hour-long exploration of the blues.
Guests include: Dr Andy Scheiber, a local musician and an English professor who often writes about the blues; local musicians and blues aficionados Andy Harwood, Mike O'Malley and Victor Velour; and three members of the Southampton, England, skiffle band The Dodge Brothers (Aly Hirji, Mike Hammond and Mark Kermode).
