IMG 8077This week on Beale Street Caravan we have hill country blues torch-bearer R. L. Boyce at his 2nd Annual Birthday Picnic in Como, Mississippi. Beginning as a youngster in the Rising Star Fife and Drum band with Otha Turner, Boyce is often noted as a protege of blues icon and fellow Como-native Mississippi Fred McDowell. In 2017, his album “Roll and Tumble” was nominated for a GRAMMY for Best Traditional Blues Album. Listen to R. L., along with the Hurt Family Fife and Drum band, and the Rising Star Fife and Drum band on this week’s episode of Beale Street Caravan.


Beale Street Caravan can be heard Wednesday nights at 11 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the go - download the FREE KRCB App from iTunes & Google Play!
