I’ve got a party in the next hour of The Roadhouse with artists who have provided some of the greatest party music in the life of the show.

In the next hour of The Roadhouse, we move to Memphis for the Blues Foundation’s 2020 Blues Music Awards and nominees in the album categories. I’ve got Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Southern Avenue, Sugaray Rayford, Terry Robb, and Jontavious Willis – an hour of great blues, very few of which have been played recently in The Roadhouse. But, even with those few duplicates, I’m going to get really, really close to another hour of the finest blues you’ve never hear – the 777th Roadhouse.

Firmly planted in The Roadhouse Studios, I have an hour that ventures from the Bayou to the Mississippi Hill Country, to Brussels, Belguim, and back to the streets of San Francisco. Along the way, we’ll stop in Atlanta, London, and New Zealand. G. Love and Special Sauce, Mark Hummel, R.L. Burnside, Bai Kamara, Jr., and Marcus King help prove that blues is global. And, with four Roadhouse debuts, they also help prove that it’s possible to put together another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

I’ve got an hour ahead that’s chock full of music you might not be hearing anywhere else, including a mix of new releases and Roadhouse debuts by three artists. Dave Specter, Laura Cox, Down to the River, Rae Gordon Band, and Betty Fox Band provide the foundation for the hour. We also venture off into the world of blues rock for a set. It’s wildly diverse, typically uptempo, and, without much doubt, another hour of the finest blues you’ve never heard.

This week, I drop a Roadhouse Rewind from 2014. I’ll be back next week with a new edition.

The 514th Roadhouse closes out the review of new releases in 2014 with Walter Trout, Trudy Lynn, Mississippi Heat, Missy Andersen, and The Duke Robillard Band. Surely, some of the names in this edition were unfamiliar to you until the year just past. It’s definitely another hour of the finest blues you might have heard in 2014 – the 514th Roadhouse.
