On August’s episode of Blues Dance World, Katie calls some people out when she takes a look at Little Walter and his song “Mean Old World”.
Katie, Clyde, Aaron, and Andy, along with special guest and all-around badass Mike Legenthal, have a discussion about the do’s and don’ts of judging blues competitions.
