"The racial, political socio-scene has more affect on the blues culture. It’s getting harder for the average person to make ends meet. The music is some relief from the day-to-day struggle. There are a lot of blues societies and people involved in supporting the blues but they are basically just maintaining, working hard, keeping the blues alive and well!"

Guitar Jack Wargo: Keepin It…
