    Any blues song, like a good work of art, tells a story. While most of these songs tell a story of despair, pain and struggle, they are also a cure to heal a spirit crying for help. In this case our spirits are crying from the mundane social responsibilities, and a Park Acoustics day filled with some of the best blues artists and great friends is the ultimate remedy.

    Blues……this music is true. No crowd will ever go boo on the style of blues. It makes me calm and the cows go moo. It relaxes and smoothes your soul if you are standing in the crowd or sitting on the loo. A type of music style for the best… all the rest. Give your life some zest.

    Mamma always said “You gotta hurt to feel the blues”. The blues makes me horny, sad, mad as hell and happy to the very ”Marrow” of my core! Its an ”Oh So Serious” affair that takes place causing ”Tidal Waves” of emotions leaving me ”Searching for Silence”. ”Only an Ocean” can wash away the blues and ‘Black Water” to rinse me of my sins!

    • Hi Letitia 🙂 You’re the lucky winner of the tickets 😀 See you there on Sunday!

    I grew up with my dad introducing me to the blues. We listened to records on Sunday afternoons or tapes on our long road trips to Namibia. A few weeks ago I went to the Otterlake restaurant to watch the Akedis band on their tour and the gig was one of the best I had ever seen. The trio played so many different blues songs as well as a few of their own songs. It was absolutely incredible and I would love to spend another Sunday afternoon listening to Blues with my lover, fondly reminiscing about my childhood…

    Because the word “blue” was said to be slang for drunk in the eighteen hundreds, many laws prohibited drinking on Sundays ( blue laws ). The only event that I know that overrides that law is P.A. Therefore I CANNOT wait for the delicious, wonderful-depressing, bass-guitar-saxophone-defining tunes on the very best of October. X
