This week on Beale Street Caravan we feature Memphis artist Barbara Blue, the Queen of Beale Street. Barbara has a brand new record out titled, Fish in Dirty H20, which features an a-list of musical talent. We’ll hear her in a performance captured at Silky O’Sullivan’s, right on the corner of Beale Street and BB King Blvd. Later in the program we talk with Barbara about the album, and about working on the street and in the clubs where blues music was born.
Grammy nominated blues man, Guy Davis, will be with us to deliver an installment of the Blues Hall of Fame, an exploration of the lives of the pioneers and innovators enshrined in the Blues Hall of Fame, here in Memphis, TN, brought to you by the Blues Foundation.
