This week’s episode of Deeper Roots focuses on gospel, blues, and tradition with a theme being the “travelin’ blues”. Whether that’s a long ride to perdition or salvation on the King’s highway or a ready roll down the road apiece…our journey will avoid the toll roads, whether they be the sacred or the profane. Performances this morning feature Rory Block, Chris Smither, Eric Clapton, Freddie King, and The Golden Gate Quartet. The show is a ‘first installment’ of traveling songs…songs about the highways…told in the key of blues with the followup in coming months being one that focuses on the country and bluegrass sound. But not today. Today’s about the blues and the gospel. Drop by.
