Get the Blues with Clarke Gernon, programming chair

"I love the Blues. I hear the Blues in all kinds of unexpected places. Narrowly defining musical styles is a dubious proposition at best. I prefer a looser definition. For me, the Blues is more a feel; a mood, that a strict genre. A Blues song can be about sadness, joy or even everyday experiences, but it is always from the heart. When I am thinking about who would be a good performer for the Baton Rouge Blues Festival, I think about songs like the ones on this playlist. Songs like these show us the Blues in all of its diversity."
