There's a different set of instrumentation in this edition of The Roadhouse that you might not expect to hear in the blues. Around that, I've got Rhiannon Giddens, Doghouse Sam & His Magnatones, Chris Daniels & The Kings, JJ Grey & Mofro, and Tinsley Ellis - all waiting to take the tiny little bandstand. The stage may be tiny but the sound is huge - it's the sound of another hour of the finest blues you've never heard: the 526th Roadhouse.

This edition of The Roadhouse is of a feel. Not quite Chicago, not quite West Coast, but a texture all its own. Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials, James Day & The Fish Fry, Lynwood Slim, Igor Prado, and Joey Gilmore are all ahead. I think you'll get the feel right away and agree that it's definitely another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 522nd Roadhouse.

The mix in the 521st Roadhouse is definitely eclectic. Robin McKelle & The Flytones, Gary Moore, Shaun Murphy, CeDell Davis, and Tangled Eye fill the hour with new releases, most of which have just been released in the past month. I'd say this is definitely the first you've heard of these releases because - yes - it's all about another hour of the finest blues you've never heard.

For the tenth anniversary show, I've got an hour of opening tracks that'll unquestionably have you chair-dancing. RJ Mischo, Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, Mighty Lester, Victor Wainwright & The Wild Roots, and Mitch Kashmar & The Pontiax are just some of the featured artists in this hour - a celebration of ten years in The Roadhouse.
