Byway Blues
Wednesdays at 8:45 a.m. and Fridays at 3:45 p.m.

Byway Blues tells the stories of the untapped blues roots in northeast Louisiana. Host Lesli Rambin shares the lives and musical accomplishments of famous local artists and their families.

The series spotlights buildings and venues that served as host to many famous musicians—all in an effort to preserve and potentially restore these historic cultural landmarks.

In addition, the segment features artists currently performing in the region who trace their inspiration from blues artists they’ve admired for years.

Byway Blues is produced with the generous support of Washington Wine and Spirits, the Entergy Charitable Foundation, the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities, and the Northeast Louisiana Arts Coucil.
