Q&A with St. Louis guitarist Tony Campanella - raw talent and experience gained the respect of fellow artists

Posted on March 22, 2019 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

"I feel that Blues can provide us all a means to transcend all of these boundaries. As musicians, we also have the responsibility to honor the history and roots of the music that we hold dear. Through that, we all can have a better understanding, acceptance, and appreciation of our racial and cultural differences. Hopefully that will lead to an elimination of our divisiveness and unite us."

"Music is such a universal form of expression. People have used music to express heavy emotion for ages. Think about the war cries of ancient tribes to create a sense of being connected with one another so they could operate as one. Music can unite us. In church people sing together to worship as one.
