Listen to the blues, reinvented, for this New Sounds program.  Hear chamber folk by Last Forever, some of America's oldest soul music in settings that combine spinet, harmonium, hammer dulcimer, violin, guitar, and banjo.  Also, there are performances of classic blues by contemporary acts like North Carolina’s the Backsliders, New Orleans blues artist Chris Thomas King and others.
