Code Blue Episode May 20, 2023

What's Happenin' Now!

2:59pm - 5:00pm

Pretty much all music keyed to recent or upcoming events today. We’ll survey the recent winners in the Blues Music Awards from Memphis. Crystal Shawanda is busy in western Canada this summer. Steve Dawson is all over the 2023 Vancouver Folk Music Festival, so we will do a bit of a feature on Mr. Steve and many of the bluesy recordings he has produced for others. We will check in with the Fraser Valley Blues Society and see what they are up to. Ditto for Vancouver Blues Around Town and their upcoming gigs at the Mel Lehan Hall. We will enlighten you about the Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival. Last but not least, a bit of Christone ‘Kingfish’ Ingram in honour of his appearance at the Hollywood Theatre. That’s a lot to do in two hours! Tune in and see if I made it all fit.
