Mardi Gras has been an institution in New Orleans since 1857. “Carolyn Fox’s Hollywood Spotlight” continues that party tradition with part 2 of its Mardi Gras specials.
Our guests include Grammy-winner Macy Gray, with stories about the recording her soon-to-be-released CD, “Covered,” plus a preview of tracks that won’t be available until March 27; Maria Muldaur, of “Midnight at the Oasis” fame, with tunes from her new CD, winner of the Living Blues award, “Steady Love”; and Sugar Blue, virtuoso harmonica player perhaps best known for his signature riff on The Rolling Stones’ hit “Miss You,” who reveals how he met the Stones in Paris, and shares music from his new CD, “Threshold.”
You’ll also hear New Orleans party classics, including Dr. John playing “Tipitina,” Anders Osborne with “Stoned, Drunk & Naked,” and Dr. Michael White with “Canal Street Blues.”
