Tuesday Drive

Tuesdays 4PM

Presented by David Barr

Hosted by David Barr, the program is an eclectic mix of roots, soul, blues, folk, contemporary Americana and African music.

“My main interest is music south of the Mason Dixon line and African music.

The southern part of the US has given us a rich legacy of wonderful and diverse music which has influenced popular culture worldwide .Much of contemporary mainstream music has its roots in the American south. In turn its roots can be traced back to the music of West Africa which was introduced by the slaves. The connection between the Blues and the music of the Sahel region is readily apparent and has brought about collaboration between African and Western musicians such as Ry Cooder, Justin Adams, Taj Mahal, Jeff Lang and many others.

The rich fabric that is American music also incorporates the Celtic folk music tradition from the UK and Ireland.

Drive Tuesday will reflect this musical diversity and I hope listeners will find an element of unpredictability about it.”
