"Steve and I met October 2018 on the open seas, at a wonderful Blues Music Event," says Jeannette. "Since meeting, Steve and I have traveled to a number of different states, plus Europe and Mexico just for the live music that was being played at those Blues Festivals.
As soon live music events come back, we will be using the Blues Festival Guide once again as our go-to information for lots of music event Road Trips."

|What's Happening Out There?|
|Thoughts about venues opening or not... share yours!|
|Hey Blues Fans!! Some blues music venues are opening up around the country. Albeit, opening then closing. What are your thoughts and/or experiences?|
Here's a nice note from a 2021 Blues Music Award Nominee and multiple award-winning artist:
"The Scene in the Pandemic...
I'm Watermelon Slim. I have played only a couple of live shows since the pandemic hit, in Stillwater and Tulsa, OK, and here in Clarksdale. They were socially distanced, in Tulsa with plexiglass dividers outdoors. The paid attendance was much less in each case than it would have been, but the fans were just as appreciative.
Everybody's adapting. My artist rep says we hope to be back in the touring business next year. I am part owner in a club, and we are still open a couple days a week.
Hope to see you on the festival scene next year,
We're interested in your thoughts:
- Have you attended or performed any live shows since the pandemic and where?
- If so, how was the vibe (i.e. joyous, awkward, attendance, etc.)
- If not, when will you feel comfortable attending?
Email me 100 words MAX and make sure to put "VENUES OPENING" in subject line (so it doesn't get lost in my email). Tell us where in the world you're located. Feel free to send me a pic of this blues music experience if you like, too.
Wishing you all good health and peace,

“Irish vocalist extraordinaire Mary Stokes continues progress in musical collaboration with the sensational Irish guitarist Sarah Michelle and partner Brian Palm. For several recording projects and in preparation for live shows, Mary Stokes has fine-tuned her authentic blues sound for which she is widely known, while at the same time reinterpreting original material,” writes The Sound Café
“With recent successes including a critically acclaimed show in Liverpool’s world renowned Cavern Club - by invitation from Julia Baird, John Lennon’s sister and Director of the Cavern, and the release of a new album Comin’ Home, including a new interpretation of Bessie Smith’s “At The Christmas Ball,” the album which garnered critical acclaim and airplay in the run up to Christmas!
In addition to Sarah Michelle on guitar, The Mary Stokes Band features sidemen Brian Palm on harmonica, with Chris Byrne on bass and Robbie Barrett on drums, and Dermot Stokes on Piano. Recorded in Dublin, the album was expertly mixed by renowned rock legend Pete Holidai (the Radiators from Space, Trouble Pilgrims) and mastered by Joe Chester.
In a musical history spanning two decades The Mary Stokes Band has performed with B.B. King, Fats Domino, John Lee Hooker, Bo Diddley, Hubert Sumlin, Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal, Lowell Fulson, Johnny Copeland, Jeff Healey, Rory Gallagher, Carey Bell, Lurrie Bell, Pinetop Perkins, Georgie Fame, Louisiana Red, Lefty Dizz, John Campbell, U.P.

Mary Stokes and her band have toured throughout Ireland, Europe, and the U.S.A, performing at numerous festivals and in many of the most iconic Blues Clubs in the World.”
Comin’ Home has had widespread accolade and acknowledgement as an authentically “live” Blues album, displaying the power, passion and blues feel that Mary Stokes and her band are renowned for.

|Stax Museum and Stax Music Academy Black History Month Celebrations|
|(MEMPHIS, TN) - Throughout American history, music has played a pivotal role in the fight for racial equality. From the message songs imprisoned Africans crafted as a way to communicate with each other during slavery, to impassioned protest songs during the Civil Rights Movement of the mid-20th century, the soundtrack generated by Black singers, musicians, and writers has provided as much nourishment for the struggle as any factor in the fight for freedom.|
The celebrate Black History Month 2021, the world-renowned Stax Museum of American Soul Music began an all-ages virtual tour (free to students and educators) starting February 10. You can register here.
Also, beginning February 17, world-renowned Stax Music Academy (SMA) will host a pay-what-you-can virtual Black history program. SMA is blending echoes of the past with technology of the future by offering a virtual Black History Month production titled “R & R: Rhythm and Revolution: Expressions of Struggle, Collaboration, and Peace.” Look here for more information on that event.
Traditionally, SMA has hosted two live, in-person performances in celebration of Black History Month – a free morning show for area students and a ticketed evening performance. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and safety-related issues, they will present an online variety show exploring Black history through music, people, and pride.
Filmed in various significant locations in Memphis, the Feb 17 virtual Black History Month SMA show will feature the music of soul greats from Aretha Franklin and Al Green to The Jackson 5, Janet Jackson, and legendary artists of Stax Records including the Staple Singers and Albert King. A combination of R&B classics mixed with original music from SMA’s talented students, young viewers will experience music of the Civil Rights Movement and more recent songs.
|How You Can Still Celebrate Mardi Gras in 2021|
|[Editor note: Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras in Feb 16, 2021. How about "Yardi Gras"?!}|
By Missy Wilkinson/Thrillist
Want a pandemic update to Professor Longhair’s seminal Carnival song? It’s easy. Just add “don’t” or “won’t” to every line. For example, “don’t go to the Mardi Gras.” “You won’t see the Zulu king.” That’s because none of the events, parades, and parties that make Mardi Gras the annual beautiful New Orleans tradition that it is will be happening this year. Bourbon Street and other gathering places will be barricaded and heavily policed in the five days leading up to Fat Tuesday. All parades, second lines, and balls are canceled. Bars will be shuttered. And city officials warn that anyone who flouts these rules will be “directly responsible for the deaths of New Orleanians.”
It’s a sobering proclamation, especially for a city that is used to drinking with abandon. Last year’s Carnival celebration, which occurred weeks before New Orleans saw its first case, contributed to an early COVID-19 peak in New Orleans. A month after Fat Tuesday 2020, COVID-19 was spreading faster in Louisiana than anywhere else in the world. A CDC report blamed the Carnival celebration, which packed more than 1 million people onto New Orleans’ narrow, potholed streets.
Bottom line: If you don’t live in New Orleans, don’t come during Mardi Gras. Yes, that really, really sucks, but so does everything about the pandemic. Although wars and police strikes have canceled Mardi Gras in years past, they didn’t completely snuff out every event or involve French Quarter barricades. Mardi Gras wasn’t even canceled after Hurricane Katrina! That’s because Carnival, which literally means “farewell to the flesh,” is as much a raucous street party as it is a memento mori, a reminder of life’s fleeting nature and an invitation to celebrate while we process grief. …Read full story

|World Radio Day is Feb 13 annually|
|World Radio Day 2021 celebrates its 10th anniversary February 13 and the more than 110 years of radio. World Radio Day was first proposed by Spain in September 2010. With backing from broadcasting associations around the world, it was unanimously accepted by UNESCO Member States in November 2011.|
The cool thing about radio is it’s still relevant and important in our daily lives. Radio is still with us, keeping us singing and keeping us informed. It’s like a great friend and neighbor, one who’s always there and never lets you down. Seriously, you’ve no doubt got several stations with blues programming within your dial’s reach. And if you Google Blues Radio, countless options popup around the globe, not to mention news and talk shows, etc.
World Radio Day 2021 celebrates radio as part of humanity’s history by following the various developments in our society and adapting its services. As the world changes, so does radio. Radio evolves, it adapts and innovates to new technologies, it's accessible everywhere and to everyone, and it connects our society.

(OAKLAND, CA) - Forty Oakland blues musicians gathered in 2003 in front of Esther’s Orbit Room. Today, seven of the performers have passed away, the venue is closed, and the once lively scene is memorialized by a Walk of Fame. But it’s never too late for a repeat performance.
Music critics differ on the origin of the blues. Many say that it began to appear in the late 1800s. But the blues scale, the pentatonic minor, was heard on the slave ships. Some have even called it the slave scale. There have been angry denunciations of those who claim that John Newton’s “Amazing Grace” was based on the songs he heard on slave ships. But its reliance on the pentatonic minor—common in Black spirituals—points to an African origin.
This slave scale has generated a billion-dollar industry. Currently, it propels advertisements from Peloton, Land Rover, Popeye’s Chicken, and others; it’s the basis for the soundtracks of television series like Bosch, Power, and the latest season of Fargo, starring Chris Rock. The complaint one hears from Oakland musicians is that while the blues have increased the revenue streams of imitators like the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, and Eric Clapton, the pioneers are neglected. The story of blues singer L.C. “Good Rockin” Robinson is not uncommon. His Oakland friends had to take up a collection to pay his funeral expenses. “The Thrill Is Gone” is considered the greatest of Oakland’s blues songs. Cowritten by Roy Hawkins and Rick Darnell, it was recorded first by Hawkins in 1951, reaching No. 6 on the Billboard charts, and then in 1969 by B.B. King, who took it to No. 3 and won a Grammy. Roy Hawkins ended his career selling furniture.
My introduction to the Oakland blues and its unique sound, a fusion that originated in a collaboration among musicians from Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas, was the 1970 album The Oakland Blues. The heyday of the Oakland blues—its sound and scene—went from the 1940s through the 1980s. ... Read this indepth story about the state of the Oakland blues
