Fog City Blues: 11th Annual Left-Hand-A-Thon


Otis Rush would have been 86 on April 29. Albert King would have been 97 on April 25. Inspired by the birthdays of these two left-handed blues guitar giants, Fog City Blues presents its 11th annual Left-Hand-A-Thon -- celebrating the blues from the other side.

As a guitar-playing lefty himself, host Devon Strolovitch is familiar with the many ways that southpaws must cope with the right-handed design of guitars. Tune in this Wednesday 4/29 at 10 pm for a salute to the bluesmen and women who've overcome their lateral bias to produce some transcendent music.
