The blues tells a story. Every line of the blues has a meaning.
I was not one to be interested in The Blues that is not until I met my husband Arvid..........11 years ago.
If there was a man really born to listen to this kind of music it is him. He lives it and feels it with an intensity like no other person I know. So that said, we are constantly on a quest to follow the music be it wherever it takes us.
The Chicago Blues Festival has turned out to be our favorite venue for Blues Music.
It is the largest free blues festival in the world and remains the largest of Chicago's Music Festivals. During three days on five stages, more than 640,000 blues fans prove that Chicago is the "Blues Capital of the World." Past performers include Bonnie Raitt, Ray Charles, B.B. King, the late Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy and the late Koko Taylor.
We have been coming here for many years and we right away fell in love with this beautiful and exciting city.
Home is Fort Lauderdale but more and more we are loving Chicago. Arvid actually told me that he would not mind making this home..........if the winters were not that cold. That said we could not live here in the cold months.
Simple music is the hardest music to play and blues is simple music.
Looking forward to the next two days filled with good music and who knows what else..........
Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Music is what feelings sound like
Time to go and listen to more music.....hasta luego amigos...
