An American Routes Spotlight on Musical Couples, Friday @ 9 on WCBE

Sep 5, 2013

Musical Couples: Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion, Leroy Jones & Katja Toivola, coming up on American Routes.

Friday night at 9:00 PM on WCBE, we’ll talk with a pair of musical couples to learn their secrets of sharing the spotlight and making beautiful music together.  Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion are folk musicians who met in the alt-country scene in LA.  Today, with two daughters and a successful career sharing the stage, they sing for families and clubs around the country.  Leroy Jones is a trumpet player from New Orleans and his wife, Katja Toivola, is a trombone player from Finland.  We’ll visit their home in the Treme to find out more about their love of bringing New Orleans jazz to world.
