Roots

     Today our co-host for a day was Irv Worcester of Minneapolis who brought in some music and stories to share.

Karl plays some Cajun and then some Zydeco. Followed by new releases from Jess Lege and Le Fere Michot.

Tribute to Dave Ray, August 17, 1943 – November 28, 2002

This performance is an exceptional display that shows that three talented musicians and a looper pedal can sound orchestral.  The beaming smiles on their faces indicate the passion they have for this distinctive sound.
