There's plenty of room for you to hop aboard the mobile musical camel on this week's World Music Show (4/23). From some really great desert music by one of the best rated guitarists in the world, to some classic Juju tunes as well as some lost and found Cuban music, this week's show should have something for everyone, whether you like to ride camels or not.
The New Mastersounds are a guitar/bass/keyboard/drum quartet from Leeds, England that plays Meters and Grant Green inspired funk/soul music. Their new album The Nashville Session is being released today – April 22 – as a limited edition, 1000-quantity vinyl exclusive pressing. It won’t be available in any other formats until May 27th.
This Friday, April 22 at 11:00 p.m. WCVE PBS will be re-broadcasting the Tweedy episode of Austin City Limits from the show’s 40th Anniversary Season. This is one of the best ACL episodes of the last few years so it’s definitely worth watching (or re-watching). Every single song is a winner.
The Virginia Opera is concluding their season with performances of Richard Wagner’s “The Flying Dutchman” this weekend at the Carpenter Theatre.

We hope you will join us this Saturday night (4/16/16) at 11:00 on Time for the Blues as Henry and I have put together a great show featuring some artists that you love as well as some with whom you may not be as familiar!
