Marcia Ball and Shemekia Copeland start this week's edition of The Blues on Saturday, August 5th at 11pm. Both have won 2017 Living Blues awards. We'll also hear from Leon Russell and Holly Cole in the first set. Holly Cole's song is from a tribute album of all Tom Waits-composed songs.
The Cincy Blues Fest is coming up August 11th and 12th, and volunteers are a crucial component. So, if you'd like to hang out for some shifts and help a worthy event, please contact them at their website cincybluefest.org.
