Janiva Magness - Live at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, Tennessee
Wed. 12/15: With guest artist G. Love & Special Sauce
Prolific and highly acclaimed blues vocalist Janiva Magness is one of the hottest acts in the business. Among the awards she has received are the B.B. King Award for Musical Excellence and the Jim Croce Award for Outstanding Achievement in Rhythm and Blues. Catch her this week live from the 2010 Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, Tennessee.
We'll also hear from G. Love & Special Sauce, a Philadelphia-based trio whose laid-back, sloppy blues sound is quite unique, as it encompasses the sound/production of classic R&B and recent rap artists. Plus, guest host Cybill Shepherd, tells us about Women and the Blues.
