Q&A with harmonica master Chris O'Leary, ranks among the blues and roots world’s most talented unsung heroes

"My hope is that younger generations will fall in love with this music much like I did ... My fear is that they’re not being exposed to Americana is big amongst younger audiences in my opinion Blues should be a bigger part of that. When you talk about American Music Blues is woven into, and provides the bedrock for everything Rock country R&B jazz etc. so if you’re talking Americana. What’s more American than Blues."…

Q&A with multitalented Dutch artist René van Commenée, creating music, (sound) art objects, theatrical performances, and pyro technical spectacles

"Art, whether it’s music, visual, dance, film; any form is important in our lives. Early humans made art already; look at the wall paintings found in caves, or the flutes that were found. I don’t think we can survive without art. There are many people who think they can, a subject more and more heard in society now rightwing politics are becoming stronger and stronger. They think it is a hobby and there should be no more funding from society…

Q&A with legendary musician/visual artist Lee Oskar, world-renowned for his iconic role as a pioneer of funk/jazz music

"I hope that any art form speaks for itself. With music, because it’s such a universal language that touches and moves people all over the world, for all the ages of time, I hope that people can experience the music purely. I know that music can open people’s eyes and open people’s hearts to all kinds of racial and socio-cultural implications and realizations, so I would hope for the best in humanity in this way."…

Q&A with veteran British Blues powerful guitarist Mick Clarke, part of the British blues boom of the late 1960s

"The balance between technique and soul? That's easy really - you have to have the technique in order to express the soul. First learn to play your instrument. Then forget how to play it and just let your soul come through. Easy to say - hard to do. I manage it occasionally."

Mick Clarke: The Man And His Blues

Wes Jeans Interview

Μετά το θάνατο του μεγάλου Stevie Ray Vaughan πολλοί προσπάθησαν να διεκδικήσουν τον τίτλο του little Stevie. Αυτή τη στιγμή κατά τη γνώμη μου, και κατά τη γνώμη πολλών άλλων, ένας από τους ποιο ικανούς για να διεκδικήσει τον τίτλο αυτό είναι

το παιδί θαύμα όπως τον αποκαλούν στην Αμερική,o τεξανός Wes Jeans. Βαρύ

αυθεντικό Texas tone και τεχνική που σπάει κοκάλα.

Έχει συνεργαστεί με πολλούς ογκολίθους του Blues (B.B King - Eric Clapton -…

Lance Lopez Interview

Πρόσφατα είχα τη τιμή να πάρω μια συνέντευξη από τον τεξανό κιθαρίστα Lance Lopez.

Ο Lopez είναι για όσους δεν τον ξέρουν είναι ένας καταπληκτικός μουσικός και βιρτουόζος κιθαρίστας της blues-rock. Ο "άνθρωπος ορχήστρα". Στον τελευταίο του δίσκο higher ground παίζει όλα τα όργανα μόνος του και επίσης έχει κάνει και την παραγωγή.

Απολαύστε τον.

Συναυλία Johnny Winter και "Down & Out"







Περιμέναμε με ανυπομονυσία την 17 Μαίου, και το ραντεβού μας ήταν στο Gagarin όπου θα εμφανιζόταν Johnny Winter(για πρώτη φορά στην Ελλάδα) και οι "Down & Out".Οι πόρτες του Gagarin είναι ακόμα κλειστές.



O κόσμος έχει κάνει μια σημαντική «ουρά» και οι πόρτες ανοίγουν τελικά στις 8:40.Ο προσέλευση του κόσμου μεγαλώνει και η διάθεση γίνεται καλύτερη, βοηθώντας σε αυτό και κάποιες μπύρες.

Blues Festival Videos

Σήμερα ανέβασαν οι φίλοι Texas Brothers 4 videos από τα κομμάτια που έπαιξαν στο Blues Festival 2008 καθώς κι εγώ ένα ακόμη video που μου έστειλε ο Tony Dollar.
