"Generation of Blues" featuring Hal Reed and Kent Burnside. It’s a perfect partnership. These two bluesmen are passionate about the history of their art form and striving to keep the blues alive by sharing their vast musical roots, while also adding their own version of the family blues form. Before passing, legendary blues man R.L. Burnside gave his grandson Kent a piece of important advice: “You gotta take a groove and just keep on driving it ‘til you come up with your own style.” And that’s exactly what Generations of Blues is attempting to do.
