Victoria Ferran - ZoneOneRadio - The Blues Special

This week we have a very special show all about Blues music. With guest interviewer William Hanley, we look at the history and influence of the genre through the eyes of the new generation of Blues musicians in the UK and through some very special archive audio featuring one of the most celebrated Blues artists of all time; B.B King.

Special thanks goes to Tourism New Brunswick for letting us interview bands at the final of their New Brunswick Battle of the Blues competition in London.

Also we would like to thank Dr William R. Ferris for use of archive audio from The William R. Ferris Collection, Southern Folklife Collection, Wilson Library, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Lastly, many thanks to Paint it Blue, Little Devils and Groove-A-Matics for taking time out to chat to us on their big night! 

And the bands....
