The acts couldn't be more dissimilar, one is the stylish, sophisticated, city blues of New Yorker Alexis P. Suter, and the other is Valerie June from small town Tennessee, with real raw cosmic-country-folk. Figure that out! The common thread is they are both very talented and have excellent bands.
Also on the show another in the series, Heavenly Sight: A Vision Out of Blindness, telling the story of some famous blind blues musicians.
Beale Street Caravan features live performances drawn from concerts recorded in the US for The Blues Foundation who are based in Memphis Tennessee.
The styles vary from traditional acoustic Country Blues to the latest approaches by the new generation of performers, with gospel and Cajun along the way. Guest presenters host mini-series about Blues History and performers, and during New Zealand Music month Kiwi blues takes centre stage.
