Love the road trip and love our tunes from the road! So why not make the pilgrimage to the heart of rock n’ roll in Memphis, Tennessee to acquire a bit more road tripping music? That is just what we did, in the nick of time to catch the International Blues Challenge and a whole tonne of great blues. Amazing the talent out there, but didn’t really expect to discover so much more Canadian music and talent from a trip to the States. That is indeed what we found, thanks in part to the Kooky Canuck and the Montreal and Ottawa Blues Societies for putting on the first ever Great Canadian Polar Bear Blues Showcase.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing more ‘Tunes from the Road’ from the heart of music and Canadian blues in Memphis, Tennessee. The first of whom is a young, none to sore on the eyes, whipper snapper, who wormed his way into my heart by making me laugh. Give it up for Mr. Jesse Roper (otherwise known as The Roper Show)!
With any luck, you’ll be seeing more of Jesse here, along with Mr. Ross Neilsen, as I’ve always been a gal for live music, and these two just make me so darn happy that I figure why pack CDs for a road trip, when you can pack a musician or two!
