Summary

Summary

The Blues Alive is a testimony to the unconquerable human spirit and the African-American music that celebrates it. Drawing on his experience as a guitar-player, a composer and an avid student of world music, Ed Flaherty traces the history of the Blues from its roots in the fields of the American South to the present day. Along the way he points out parallels to the Blues in other cultures, including the flamenco music of Spain and the soulful laments of the Bauls of Bengal, India, indicating that the Blues is a timeless tradition that addresses the homesickness in every human heart.
