So, how about it?
In 100 words or less we'd love for you to describe the most truly UNIQUE thing you've witnessed or experienced at a Blues festival that you've attended or been an integral part of. Not just "they had the best hotdogs" or "we got to sit up close"... Get creative, don't be shy... and YES, look for those quality photos to accompany.

Please email your responses right away to
 The sooner the better! Include the festival name, date and location, plus your full name and your location.

Your submission may be used in the Blues Festival Guide 2009 magazine!
Bring it on!

Music mart set to sing the blues as CD sales continue freefall
The latest IFPI statistics also highlight that piracy continues to stalk the music industry

Cannes: This year's influential MIDEM music trade show is likely to be short on high notes as the music industry struggles on in a crisis-hit world to find new revenue to compensate plummeting CD sales.

But the outlook for music fans worldwide remains upbeat as more music and music videos become available on a growing number of Internet sites including MySpace Music, mobile phones and other new digital platforms. "There will be fewer people this year," MIDEM director Dominique Leguern told AFP ahead of the Sunday opening of the world's biggest such show. "Our industry has been in crisis for over five years and, on top of that, there is the global economic crisis."

Over 85 countries are expected in this Riviera seaside resort for the event, with huge interest also in the MidemNet show, held on the eve of MIDEM against the backdrop of several potentially ground-breaking announcements. Apple announced early this month that it will make every song in its massive iTunes library available without DRM anti-piracy software by April. This means even music lovers who don't own an iPod will be able to buy and download songs from the iTunes site on to any MP3 music player.
And Apple's parallel decision to drop its sales practice of selling all iTunes songs for 99 US cents in favour of a triple pricing system is also likely to be followed by other online music sites. But what impact Apple's shift will have on the troubled music industry, as well as the Internet, mobile phone and video game worlds, remains far from clear.

The recording industry for its part has started to reinvent itself and its business models, John Kennedy, chairman and chief executive of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), said Friday. "There is a momentous debate going on about the environment on which our business... depends. Governments are beginning to accept that... doing nothing is not an option if there is to be a future for commercial digital content."

And the situation online is rosier than in previous years. Digital outlets -- as opposed to CDs and other traditional forms of music -- now account for some 20% of recorded music sales, up from 15% in 2007, according to the IFPI report. Music company sales internationally from digitally downloaded music rose 25% in 2008 to $3.7 billion, the report noted. But the latest IFPI statistics also highlight that piracy continues to stalk the music industry. "The music sector is still overshadowed by the huge amount of unlicensed music distributed online," IFPI said, citing studies in 16 countries that showed that only one in 20 downloads are via legal channels.

Russia, where digital music sales have fantastic growth potential and physical sales continue to defy industry norms, according to MIDEM's Leguern, will be the fair's 2009 country of honour. Russian superstar Valeriya will perform at the Opening Night Party Sunday along with a plethora of other top names from the country's music scene.
Taiwan and Korea are bringing some of their hottest musical talent.

Glitz and glamour will be provided by some of the world's top music stars, including Coldplay, Seal, Duffy, Katy Perry and Akon, in town for French radio station NRJ's annual music awards.

The BluesCaravan has taken the big blues bus around the world four times already. They've toured across Europe, headed through the great American cities and passed all the world's great landmarks. The New York State Blues Festival or an intimate performance for BBC Radio, huge theatres or small clubs, the musicians of the caravan have played wherever they have been invited.

The Caravan is in its fifth year now, which calls for a celebration. Like every year the travelling festival features three artists performing their own shows, and as ever, the finale will culminate in all three artists jamming together.

The ages of this year's trio add up to only 69, younger than Buddy Guy alone! That's why this year's motto "Fresh Blues" fits- in every sense.

Take Oli Brown(18) for example. Oli revels in his role as the leader of a tough little bluesrock trio who had their first gig in March 2007 in a small Norwich pub. News travelled fast about this new kid on the block with a sound of his own: loud, rough, soulful. Reverend John Mayallhas already praised Oli, not only because of his skillful guitar playing, but also because he has a voice that he needn't hide behind his Stratocaster.

The Finns are pretty well known for their love of the blues, not only because of the Kausrismakis, but even more because of Erja Lyytinen(29). RUF has made this young musician internationally known, partly by installing her into the BluesCaravan two years ago, where she bewitched her audience with her powerful playing and smoking good looks.

And here's the latest discovery from the RUF youth work department. It cannot be denied that Joanne Shaw Taylor (22) equals Erja Lyytinen in the eye candy stakes. She hails from Birmingham and the city's dialect is in her genes but once she starts singing you would never know it because once this perky girl grabs her guitar and plays a few notes, male-dominated blues begins to be a thing of the past. She is one of the best female blues guitarists around. Her CD debut, which will soon be released in the US, was produced by the legendary Jim Gaines (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Santana) who, by the way, also took responsibility for the last Ruf Records of the late Luther Allison.

Singing the blues: Baytown denies county fair organizers' request for live music festival
BAYTOWN TOWNSHIP - Washington County Fair organizers are singing the blues this week, after Baytown Township officials denied their request to host a live music festival that would have given them another revenue-generating annual event.

On Monday, the Baytown Board of Supervisors voted 5-0 to reject a Washington County Agricultural Society application that would have made the County Fairgrounds the site of the fledgling Deep Blues Festival for the next five years. "It just plain limits the opportunities we have to be self-supporting," Agricultural Society President Dan Dolan said after the meeting. "We need events - dog shows, horse shows, blues festivals, whatever - to generate revenue to support the fairgrounds and have the fair."

Baytown residents and officials said they are sympathetic to the Agricultural Society's need to find new revenue streams but are not willing to tolerate the noise that comes along with outdoor music festivals. "Amplified music wreaks havoc on our neighborhood," said Baytown resident Steve Ogren, "We live here. This is our whole weekend ... and it's intolerable."

The first Deep Blues Festival was held in River Falls, Wis., and it moved to the County Fairgrounds last year for its second event. The three-day festival featured 45 bands and drew about 550 fans July 18-20. While festival organizer Chris Johnson said he didn't receive any complaints last year, several Baytown residents turned to oppose its return at a public hearing Monday night.

"We get the noise from the Fairgrounds running through our yard all day and all night," said Douglas Lake. "I appreciate the fair's position, but I oppose this application."

After hearing similar comments from several residents, the town planning commission unanimously recommended the Agricultural Society's request be denied. In the meeting that followed, town board members took their recommendation.

"I love the fair - noise is the only issue," said board member Michael Amundson. "I think it's telling that the guidelines we're talking about come from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. ... Noise is a form of pollution, and (the Agricultural Society is) basically asking for the right to pollute at will."

When Agricultural Society representatives protested, Amundson said he questioned the group's apparent willingness to risk alienating its neighbors over the $2,000 the Deep Blues Festival had agreed to pay this year.

"I don't understand how this has become so adversarial over such a small amount of money," he said. "You don't seem to be a penniless organization. ... Let's try a different approach."

After the meeting, Dolan said he and his board are trying to proactively address declining fair attendance and the loss of other events by creating new revenue streams in the hopes they will grow in the future.

"We're running pretty lean, and every penny counts," he said.

Johnson - who lost money after investing more than $30,000 in last year's event - said he wasn't surprised by the town's decision, but he was still disappointed by it.

"I would have loved to come back here. It's a great open-air place that doesn't disturb many people," the 45-year-old Hudson, Wis., resident said.

Now that the Fairgrounds are off the table, Johnson said he expects to hold the Deep Blues Festival July 15-19 in Minneapolis, in the parking lot between the Cabooze and Whiskey Junction.

Down the Tracks: The Music That Influenced Led Zeppelin
By Chris Gray in Eyeballin'

Even the most naïve and surface Led Zeppelin listener tell you at least that they were influenced "by the blues." But this insightful and surprisingly solid documentary goes way further in delving into the sound and the performers which were in the minds (and on the home stereos) of Mssrs. Page and Plant, both in their youths and while recording some of the greatest rock music ever.

Even without the draw-you-in Zeppelin tag, Down the Tracks could serve just as well as a historical jaunt through the blues of Charley Patton and Son House through the electrifyin' of Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, up to the English skiffle and folk booms. All of which took place well before the 1969 release of debut Led Zeppelin, where - according to one interviewee here - the band "pumped the blues with steroids."

And you can easily see why young, white, pasty-faced English teens would be attracted to American blues music with its raw, manly, and blatantly sexual power. The DVD does have a weakness in its unfortunate dearth of actual musical performance video. The absence of Zep songs and footage is understandable, given the probable high cost of their licensing fees.

But it's curious that there's so little - and then only snippets - of players like Son House, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf and Bukka White. Elvis's guitar picker Scotty Moore, also noted as a huge influence on Page, doesn't even appear in a photo. As a result, Zeppelin's music is explained an awful lot by talking-head music writers and blues historians... mostly white males, middle-aged and often bearded.

Alligator Records is proud to announce the signing of musical legend Buckwheat Zydeco. The Louisiana accordion master and vocalist will begin recording his debut for the label on Janary 10 at the famed Dockside Studios in Maurice, Louisiana with Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) producing. The multi-Grammy nominee will celebrate his 30th anniversary as a solo artist with the new CD and a lengthy tour.  

Over the course of his celebrated career, Buckwheat Zydeco has played for President Clinton, performed at the closing ceremonies of the 1996 Summer Olympics (to a worldwide audience of 3 billion people), and gigged with everyone from Eric Clapton (with whom he also recorded) and U2 to The Boston Pops. He has appeared in a number of theatrical films and on too many television programs to mention, including The Late Show With David Letterman, The Today Show, MTV, NBC News and many others.  

According to Alligator Records president Bruce Iglauer, the addition of Buckwheat Zydecoto the label is huge. "Buckwheat Zydeco is the iconic figure of Louisiana zydeco music worldwide. It's a thrill to bring an artist of this stature to Alligator. More important, he still tears it up at every show. His energy level and accordion chops are just amazing, and he's a terrific, soulful singer. And he's no slouch on Hammond organ, either. I'm also excited to reunite Buckwheat with Steve Berlin of Los Lobos as producer. Berlin produced Five Card Stud, one of Buckwheat's finest albums, so we're expecting Buckwheat's Alligator debut to be just as good, if not better. Also, Buckwheat has been booked for years by Concerted Efforts, a great agency for American roots music." 


Alligator Records is proud to announce the signing of blues/rock guiarist and vocalist Tommy Castro. Winner of the 2008 Blues Music Award for B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year, Castro is known not only for his scorching musicianship, but also for his gritty vocals and soul-drenched songwriting. He is recognized as one of the absolute best players, singers and live performers around. Guitar Player called Castro "the hardest working bluesman on the scene today. He has a vibe somewhere between Booker T. & The MG's and The Rolling Stones." Playboy declared, "Castro throws rock and two bits of soul in his blues. He has the voice, the band and the guitar to pull it off." Castro will record his Alligator debut this month, with John Porter (B.B. King, Elvis Costello, Buddy Guy, Keb' Mo', The Smiths, Otis Rush, Billy Bragg, Roxy Music) producing.  

Joining Alligator is a high point in Castro's career. "I feel that in signing with Alligator I'm making a major step frward. I'm excited about the new release and grateful for the opportunity to record for a label with such a rich history in blues and American roots music."

Iglauer is equally thrilled to have Castro in the Alligator fold, "Tommy Castro has earned his huge and devoted fan following the old-fashioned way-by delivering thousands of totally knockout live performances, coast to coast. His music rides the fine line between blues and Memphis soul, and his energy level is unbelievable. He's certainly a guitar hero, but even more than that, Tommy is simply a great singer, very soulful and very intense."

Jeff Norwood grew up on his family's farm in rural Chesterfield County, SC, where he worked as a field hand and a tractor driver in his formative years. His first exposure to roots music and blues was in the homes of field hands and in country juke joints. After seeing Johnny Winter perform a show in Columbia, SC,  a young Jeff Norwood decided to make music his profession. 

  Jeff began his career performing in small town dance halls and backwoods juke joints. He then apprenticed himself to R&B greats, The Drifters, and later, The Tams, working as road manager, sound man and  fill-in band member whenever possible. He traveled through Mississippi to learn and experience the Blues at the hands of such notables as Odell Harris, Robert Belfour, T- Model Ford, David "Honeyboy" Edwards, the Late Paul"Wine"Jones and others. Jeff has also toured and worked with Drink Small, known as 'The Blues Doctor', for his mastery of Blues and Gospel styles. Others Jeff has worked with include artists as diverse as Hootie and The Blowfish, The Independents, Jason Ricci and New Blood, The Impressions(Curtis Mayfield's Band), GWAR, Rockin' Jason D. Williams, etc..

    Equally comfortable solo or fronting a band, Jeff stays busy performing as many as 5 nights per week, mostly in the Southeast US. Jeff is also listed as an approved artist on the South Carolina Arts Commission Artist Roster for Performing Arts in Education and presents programs and workshops on roots music and its origins.

    Norwood has performed at several notable festivals: The former King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, AK, Piccolo Spoleto  in Charleston,SC,  The Juke Joint Fest in Clarksdale, MS, the former Riverwalk Blues Festival in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, The  Sweet Gum Bottom Blues Festival in Greenville, AL, with more on the way.

  Norwood is focused on the preservation of  the traditional  music and culture of the American Southeast as is reflected in his music: an original blend of traditional and modern elements bound together with the primal pulse of a backwoods, moonshine-drenched Saturday night. Norwood's sound is authentic deep blues that still manages to resonate with audiences of of its more modern offspring, helping to bring roots music into a new era.


Jeff Norwood: Electric, Acoustic and Resonator Guitars, Vocals, wooden drink crate, Mississippi tamborine, cigar box guitar, and other primitive American roots music instruments.
