The Fellowship Band

Press / Brian Blade

Airs Friday, December 18, at 9 p.m. This week on the Caravan we feature a special one hour profile of Shreveport's own Brian Blade featuring selected works from Brian Blade and the Fellowship Band plus numerous works from other artists with whom he collaborated. Then we turn to Paul Winter and our annual holiday special "Paul Winter's Solstice Concert" with special guests Paul McCandless, gospel singer Theresa Thomason, Danny Rivera -- the "National Voice of Puerto Rico”, and Abdel Salaam's Forces of Nature percussion and dance ensemble. 

Airs Monday, August 4 at 8 p.m. One of the drawbacks to being one of the world's best (and most versatile) drummers is that you stay incredibly busy. Too busy, sometimes, to focus on creating your own projects rather than servicing those of others. Luckily, the spotlight has returned in recent years to , who has released his first album as a guitar-playing singer-songwriter (this year's spiritually-tinged Mama Rosa) and has been touring with his beloved, long-standing Fellowship Band.
