Scenes from the Road

An archive of blues photo essays

According to an old proverb, a picture is worth a thousand words. And, didn't Rod Stewart once sing, "every picture tells a story, don't it?" In a nutshell, that summarizes our motivation behind this feature, called "Scenes from the Road."

Over the years, we've traveled to some great blues destinations and have witnessed some excellent music, not to mention some of the fascinating characters we've encountered. These stories have been buried in dusty shoe boxes in our closets for too long, so we plan to bring some of them back to life on these pages. We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed making these photos on our journeys in search of great blues.
