What do red beans and rice have in common with laundry? Tee Eva explains this odd but sensible tradition, while Snooks sings about it. We talk with the folks at Inglewood Farms who nourishes some of the best restaurants in town with their organic produce and livestock including Bayona.

Our program is accompanied by live performances featuring Groovesect, Cyril Neville, Pfister Sisters, Helen Gillet and many more!
