Upjumped The Blues

The Blues runs through American music like a mighty river. But, like every big river, it has many streams and tributaries that both are fed by the river and in turn flow back into it "downstream.

At the same time, however, we will also listen to blues-inflected country, gospel, R&B, folk and even rock music that reflects this great source of American popular music.
