It’s a blues and country showdown on American Routes with two instrumental showmen. Jerry Douglas is a master of the dobro, and a favorite session man and band member for so many musicians: from Alison Krauss to Elvis Costello. We’ll talk to Jerry about his 2012 project, Traveler, which lead him beyond bluegrass to New Orleans. Then, a visit with the acrobatic bluesman Guitar Shorty, who shares some history on his times traveling the Chitlin Circuit.
We gather together to give thanks for our cornbread and red beans and chicken cordon blues. Call any vegetable and join us for our tribute to feasting on this, the heaviest of American holidays. Do the mashed potato yeah.
