In this hour of The Blues & Beyond, we explore the film "We Juke Up In Here." The film is a sequel to the 2008 film M For Mississippi A road Trip Through The Birthplace of The Blues, and once again presents Roger Stolle and Jeff Konkel driving through rural Mississippi, recording blues musicians in performance and talking with them... though the tone is quite different from M For Mississippi, a sense that an era is ending. Stolle and Konkel focus on the one juke joint still thriving in the Clarksdale area, Red's Lounge, and its proud proprietor Red Paden, while looking at how other venues have closed or dropped live bands. We'll hear stories and thoughts from blues musicians and club owners in Mississippi in this affecting look at a tradition in transition, plus music from Robert Glasper and jazz singer Rhiannon in this hour of The Blues & Beyond.
