This week’s program treats you to a taste of the blues, inflections of West Africa, as well as a moment of Gospel accompanied with live music by Marcia Ball, Toubab Krewe, the Johnny Vidacovich Trio, Tommy Ridgely and more! All these voices come together as we prepare for a visit to the Congo Square New World Rhythms festival.
Gin ambassador and master mixologist, Gary Hayward, lightens our spirits with some timeless recipes, as we prepare for Tales of the Cocktail. We also look into some of the festival food as Woody of Woody’s Fish Tacos gives us a peek inside his food truck. The program eventually takes a ferry trip across the mighty Mississippi for a set of music, all recorded live at the Old Point Bar in Algiers Point. Fah-yuh!
