Alt-country artist Amy LaVere is a welcome regular on Beale Street Caravan, and the BSC crew recorded a gig in Memphis promoting her new release, 'The Runaway's Diary', made up of songs about her difficult childhood and teenage years, and running away from home at sixteen.

The second half of the show features Eric Lindell, a roots rocker from Northern California who went to New Orleans to refine his combination of soul, foot-stomping R&B, swamp pop, funk and blues. As an added bonus, playing guitar behind Eric on this show is master of Chicago and Texas blues, Anson Funderburgh, previously with The Rockets, Sam Myers, The Fabulous Thunderbirds.
