If You Love The Blues, This Is The Place For You.

There are many ways to describe the Blues, but as Gary Moore (R.I.P.) said, ‘Everybody knows what it’s about.’ Life, love, loss, there’s no story the Blues can’t tell without touching somebody’s soul. It’s best described as an emotional roller coaster, taking on a journey of highs and lows of joy, fury and heartbreak.

This music has come a long way since its birth in the 19th century. Since then it has experienced a rapid evolution in form and style, giving us Rhythm ’n’ Blues (R ’n B), Gospel, Soul, and even Rock and Roll and Heavy Metal.

Without the likes of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters or Rory Gallagher we wouldn’t have Eric Clapton, Slash, the Rolling Stones or Louis Armstrong. As the great Willie Dixon put it, ‘The Blues are the roots and the other musics are the fruits.’
