Ruthie Foster, Live at the 2010 Beale Street Music Festival

11/10: This week we've got an amazing performance from Ruthie Foster at the 2010 Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis, TN. Ruthie is one of the absolute best in blues music today, her band is consistently stellar, and we're excited every time we have a chance to have her on the program. You don't want to miss this week!

Also this week, our guest artist is the late Howard "Louie Bluie" Armstrong bringing his country blues to the stage at the Mississippi Valley Blues Festival in Davenport Iowa.

Guest host, Scott Dirks, tells us about the Chicago blues.
