Sugar Blue (Wednesdays at 9 p.m.)
Though he has won a Grammy and recorded with the likes of Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones, harmonica master Sugar Blue still knows how to serve up an intimate, bluesy masterclass. In his weekly “unplugged” sessions at Rosa’s, he shows off the sound that the Chicago Tribune has praised as “combining the visceral power of blues expression with the technical acuity and harmonic sophistication of jazz.”

Two of the country's most compelling blues singer-songwriters, Peter Karp and Sue Foley teamed up in 2010 to create He Said She Said, combining their folksy vocals and guitar-picking prowess. Now on tour, the duo delight audiences with their sultry vocals and emotionally resonant lyrics.

Longtime mentees of Buddy Guy, Howard and the White Boys have honed their blues chops at Guy's club Legends and on a slew of midwestern tours with the master himself. The quartet moves effortlessly between whoop-spawning slow jams and incendiary, guitar-driven barn burners.
