Q&A with Argentinian promoter Mariano Cardozo (Baires Blues) - Blues flame in the souls of South America

Posted on November 13, 2019 at 7:00pm 0 Comments

"The Blues speaks precisely of that, of the struggle for the same rights for all, there is no color, we are all human beings. Blues is the most direct music, which enters the heart."

Mariano Cardozo: Keeping the Blues Alive

Argentinian Mariano Cardozo is a hard worker blues producer, musician, manager and director of Baires Blues Productions.…


Q&A with Canadian musician Sue Decker - early blues and folk with the songwriting sensibility of outlaw country

Posted on November 13, 2019 at 11:30am 0 Comments

"I am always drawn to the places where music connects people who might seem different from each other or divided. I've been in many situations where there are divisions or differences among people in terms of their political views and cultural backgrounds, but it melts away (or at least gets set aside) when we play music together."

Interview with Canadian energic vocalist Angel Forrest - her music is an incredible canvas of influences

Posted on November 13, 2019 at 11:30am 0 Comments

"The music I am exposed to today...I find lacks depth and heart. Like most of what's going in in the world...I fear the loss of human connection. Hopefully the Blues will take over for the empty music we are feed on commercial radio. People are hungry to feel and be moved."

Q&A with Chicago-based Breezy Rodio, an exciting artist and rising star of blues (and beyond) music todays

Posted on November 11, 2019 at 7:00pm 0 Comments

"I met many wonderful musicians in Europe and Brazil. The blues is everywhere. The audience might not be the same of the one you get in Chicago, but the blues is definitely an international language!"

Breezy Rodio:

One Love, One World, One Language

Breezy Rodio impressed Chicago Blues…


Q&A with harmonica virtuoso Sugar Blue - all aboard to the magical music voyage into the Blues colors and beyond

"Blues and Jazz Music broke down the racial barriers between people of all races, denominations and cultures before anything else did, it brought about a common love and understanding that we are still working at, harmony is the key!!"

Q&A with Crescent City-based Big Mike Perez - Chicago rhythm n' blues with soul, funk and some rooted reggae

Posted on November 8, 2019 at 9:30am 0 Comments

"Well I think we all know that blues was created in the south by African Americans. Using a lot of their influences and speaking of their experiences. It comes from a lot of emotions. Truth be told I stay away from politics so I really don’t know. As far as racial implications, blues nowadays is loved by every color and every ethnicity at least in my experience. Like I said before, it is a healer."…


Q&A with photographer Will Jacks - documented the lively nightlife of Po’ Monkey’s, one the most famous juke joint

"Great art always reflects the sociopolitical happenings of its time. You can recognize the value of a culture based on the art being created."

Q&A with Philadelphia native Tom Craig - have a great love for the American Blues and Roots tradition

Posted on November 7, 2019 at 11:00am 0 Comments

"I’m not a big fan of modern contemporary pop music; just a personal preference. As far as modern blues music, I feel like it’s in a pretty good place. The blues tent has enough room for all tastes and styles. I would like to see more younger people follow the genre as fans to ensure we all have fans to enjoy the music we create moving forward."

Tom Craig: Get Ready For The…


Q&A with Geoff Muldaur, one of the great voices and musical forces to emerge from the folk, blues and folk-rock scenes

Posted on November 4, 2019 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

“The impact has been significant of course.  Integrated bands helped lead the way… Butterfield made a huge contribution in 1965 when he showed up with and integrated band from Chicago.  Folk musicians in urban areas had an easy time crossing racial lines.  Once one sees this working (an audience), they think differently about their neighbors.”

Geoff Muldaur: The Dreamin’ Folk…


Q&A with Greek band of Dustbowl (Panos Birbas & Nick Fysakis) - somekinda “fancier” than ever psychedelic alt. country – rock direction

Posted on November 4, 2019 at 6:30pm 0 Comments

"I believe that every art form is a political statement. Rock music must have this alternate view. And I have to admit that I hate every right-wing guy out there."

Dustbowl: The Story of Mother Earth Rock

Greek band Dustbowl founded in May 2006. In Sept. 2008 their 1st album “Troublebound & Lonesome” has been released and in May…
