What an expierence on the way to Memphis in Memphis and back home. You talk about a challenge, it was the getting to the IBC that seemed to be the most challenging. I almost didnt get to go, but at the last minute i manage to straighten out a few personal difficulties.
Off I went to the IBC in Memphis. I found out that it wasnt so bad going alone and hanging out with the folk. I enjoyed seeing other Artist and thier perspecitive of what the BLUES was. I brought with me a arsenal of some my best original material only to find out that i could have done some of the old standard stuff as well as my originals. However it was good for me beause, i got to write even more Blues songs for my up and coming CD. It seemed to go over very well with the audience.
I also had a challenge when i was perfomrin at the IBC, the piano kept going out ...no electricity. so i sang acapplea lol ..it wasnt no thang ! ( that made it even more interesting.) It happened again at the WiB on that friday. Wow ...I still made it to the semi finals and met some nice media folk in the meantime. I flew back home just ahead of the awful snow storm in chicago. I was very glad to come back home and seemed i like i slept for days. I brought back even more confidence that I dont need to be validated or qualified on my perspective of my Blues . i only wanted to be loved and respected for it...and i got all of that.
