Music Voyager Previous Broadcasts

Albany/Columbus, Ga (Episode #605H)

KQED 9: Thu, Oct 26, 2017 -- 11:30 PM

This episode sees the Music Voyager team delving deeper into the Georgian heartlands, where spirituals, gospel and the blues laid the foundation for American popular music. They start in Albany with Miss Rutha Harris, one of the original Freedom Singers that marched with Martin Luther King Jr. to Washington DC. Every second Saturday, Ms. Harris still assembles her fellow Freedom Singers and new voices from the next generation to join in song to keep the spirit of freedom alive. Next, they head to Columbus and the house of Ma Rainy 'The Mother of the Blues' where her colorful story is just one of many enriching experiences on this journey to where it all began.

Today, musicians such as Kishi Bashi, The Whigs and Otis Redding III call the region home, and they feature performances and adventures with these inspirational artists.
