We chat with our friend, music writer Bruce Borgerson, who just took Highway 61 to the  Mississippi Delta to gain a feel for the place where blues music began.  He shares insights and photos, and we’ll throw in lot’s of delta blues into the mix.  Also new music from Gina Chavez, Sidiki, Twisted Pine, Ms. Zeno The Mojo Queen, Lake Street Dive, Edie Brickell & The New Bohemians and more.  Then Gabriela gives us a recipe for a sublime gingerbread loaf.  Music, Food, Friends…It’s UnderCurrents WEEKEND.
