Saul Kaye live on Fog City Blues

Apr 13, 2016

With Passover just around the corner, San Francisco bluesman Saul Kaye has just released Jewish Blues Volume IV: Down Home Nigguns and Other Songs from the Family Tree.

Like his great-grandfather who blazed a trail from Russia to South Africa to trade cattle between warring African Tribes, Saul has brought together the sounds of the struggle of the African Slaves in this country with the history of the Jewish slavery experience. If you can imagine Muddy Waters meets Shlomo Carlebach, you've got an artist here who is bringing something new to modern Jewish music and bridging the gap between the Delta and the Torah. Saul joins host Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 4/13 at 9 pm.
