Here's to hoping you all got through last weekend's storm without too much damage. In my neighborhood we really dodged the bullet, however my kiddo in Tulsa was in the midst of the mess over there. Realizing the damage was going to take awhile to fix, I took her a generator on Monday. As of this morning there are still about 35,000 people without power in Tulsa, so my "what a week" statement has my heart focused on those folks.
Of note this week in our Blues News, I would point to the place holder in the right hand column in place of the "On this day in Blues History" feature. I know the Bluesland site suffered cyber attacks some time ago, hence why they diverted to podcasts and Facebook presentations. Neither
of those formats have updated since June 11th. I will keep an eye on those sites and make a call on continuing (or dropping) the feature in an upcoming issue. We don't have any new articles this week but will continue offering the article offering quick access to some of the area's summer music series and venues. You will also find the continuing article for the weekly Blues History feature from Big Train and the Loco Motives. Read on below for how to access these great blues history presentations.
Perhaps you are not seeing your favorite blues artist or venue listed in our calendar? We compile listings from local community calendars for our partner artists and venues throughout the area.
