Get the Blues with Chris Brooks, festival chairman

"The blues have always had a significantly deep impact on my life. I'll never forget riding home from church when I was 12-13 years old and hearing John Mayall's "Change Your Ways" on the radio. I remember thinking, "Who/what is this? And how can I get more of it?" I was immediately hooked. I believe the blues is the original American music art form and the majority of the music we enjoy today is a direct byproduct of it."
