Freddie King sang, "Well, someday, baby
You ain't gonna worry my life anymore"
Life....yesterday, today, and likely tomorrow, the blues are going to hit someone. Yesterday (and somewhat today) was one of those days for me. Though I must confess, I do recognize the depth of my worry does not match the struggles of early blues artists and the slaves that laid the foundation for Blues music through their oppression. In
Freddie King's rendition of Big Maceo Merriweather's "Worried Life Blues," we can catch the truth that in life, at some point, we all can get hit with the blues.
Today's new articles include a review of this week's OBS annual meeting AND a "Mark Your Calendar" article with the date for our fall Blues Challenge. You will also find a new call for newsletter submissions.
Always remember, this is YOUR newsletter! Please consider sharing dates that for your favorite artists that are not included in the community calendars we use. We would also love to have a local live blues music reporter to share stories for the newsletter. Many bands have time challenges in submitting information and this would be a great way for fans to show them some love! Please send questions, information, feedback, and suggestions our way. Just click on Sandy's email address below.
We appreciate our readers and want
to see your ideas included!
