On this episode of Blues Dance World, we’re going live in Nashville at Mo Better Blues!
Katie celebrates Nashville’s “Queen of the Blues” Marion James for our Monthly Blues Jam. Marion James worked hard to help out fellow musicians and keep Blues alive and kicking. The song this month is “That My Man”.
Our main topic this month is “Romanticism, History, and the Search for Authenticity” where we pose a lot of questions and give some thoughts about how our modern Blues scene fits into a historical context.
