Beale Street Caravan features up-and-coming blues star, Matt Schofield at last year's King Biscuit Blues Festival, and from the New Orleans Jazz Fest, a soulful set from Walter Wolfman Washington.
Matt Schofield is a fine guitarist from Manchester, U.K., who took his inspiration from Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King, and Albert Collins, but he's no clone, the man's got what it takes.
Also a fine guitarist, Walter Washington became a local legend in the black clubs of New Orleans in the '70s and '80s, and worked his way up to national recognition.
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.
