The Interviews: Blues Encounters 2000-2020
(Who Is Blues Vol. 2)
Fifteen interviews. Two decades of blues. That’s what you’ll find inside The Interviews: Blues Encounters 2000-2020, the second volume in the Who Is Blues series by New York-born author and journalist Vincent Abbate.
The book is a collection of candid in-depth conversations with 15 prominent blues bands and musicians, spanning the spectrum from downhome Mississippi blues to ear-piercing bluesrock. The Q&A interviews are virtually uncut, conveying honest portraits of blues luminaries past and present such as B.B. King, Walter Trout, Bobby Rush and Samantha Fish. The 265-page paperback also includes a selection of original photos by Marcella auf der Heide and brief biographical sketches of each of the profiled artists.
