Today we have a live session from Chattanooga blues musician Rick Rushing. We were lucky to catch Rick in an incredibly special and intimate setting at The Moxy, Chattanooga, just Rick, our presenter, producer, and his guitar.
Rick’s songs and the spirit in which he plays are incredible, but just as special was the conversation we had in between. The Blues is the bedrock of all music, even country, and when you hear Rick talk about his passion for this seminal American art form you’re going to understand why.
“The Blues is where everything comes from. It is raw and revives the soul, true emotion, and musical creativity.”
You’ve been listening to blues master Rick Rushing, one of Chattanooga’s best musicians. His band is called Rick Rushing & The Blues Strangers and you can hear them live in Chattanooga and across the state. www.rrandbluesstrangers.wordpress.com
