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.

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.
