First up in this week’s news is the results from last Sundays Ct Blues Challenge Solo/Duo Competition. The two acts that made it through to the finals were Swamp Shaka and Tony C (who won the competition 2 years ago) and a new entry in the Challenge the Dirty 2:30. Both acts make it to the Finals at the Pine Loft in Berlin Ct. on Sunday Oct 20th.
The Blues Blast interview this week is with Laura Chavez who is Candye Kane’s lead guitar player. A lot of the interview talks about her time as a contestant at the IBC in Memphis and how important it is to compete in the Challenge because of all of the added exposure you get. As always it’s a great read.
American Blues Scene has an interview with Robert Santelli who is the Executive Director of The Grammy Museum and a lifelong scholar in the blues. Among his many accomplishments are a number of definitive books on the genre, as well as pivotal roles in some of the most celebrated music museums in the world, including the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Experience Music Project in Seattle.
In anticipation of Robert’s upcoming speech in Saint Louis for the National Blues Museum, they sat down to discuss his museum work, the influence (and lack of influence) the blues has had on popular music, his writing, and the special things that make music museums truly great. It’s also a great read you can find the link to it in this week’s write up.
Also in American Blues Scene this week is an article about the CAll and Response Symposium at the King Biscuit Festival in Helena Ark on the 12th of October. Participating in the symposium are Bobby Rush, Carl Weathersby, Blind Mississippi Morris along with Blues writers and producers discussing the state of Blues music today and how difficult it is to stay relevant.
