Q&A with legendary British blues knight Chris Youlden - savour the vintage, original, pure, and authentic

Posted on November 14, 2018 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

"Where would I go…On a human level leaving music aside, being interested in archeology, prehistory and all that I think I would rather go back to 40,000 years ago, and see Neanderthal man first, Homo Sapiens and go from there. On a musical level I would like to go back to probably the late forties, early fifties where one of my heroes Muddy Waters was making it."

Posted on November 13, 2018 at 7:30pm 0 Comments

"Beat literature is based on the authenticity of those it describes. It talks about all that is not obvious but exists. In the dark alleys of the city, in the seedy bars, in the prison deals.

"The blues teach me to be open, authentic, a warrior for freedom of ideas and voices to be heard ... a path for stories of life, warts and all, to travel. Although all genres are a door to those voices and stories, the blues are raw and shake bones and soul."

Q&A with Kentucky’s rising blues sensation, Laurie Jane & The 45’s - heartfelt and wistful drive down to roots

Posted on November 3, 2018 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

"Music is one area in society where people can have different opinions and preferences but still get along. A real music connoisseur could go to any genre show and still enjoy the experience. They wouldn’t focus on the differences but instead enjoy the new melodies and beats that define the other styles."
