Recorded live in Stockholm in 2015, this programme, ‘Blues Everywhere I Go’, takes us on a journey through the cotton plantations of the Mississippi Delta: from the poignant expression of human distress with songs such as ‘Dinks Blues’ and the ‘Cross Road Blues’ by Robert Johnson, to the political aspect and its important link with the struggle for civil rights led by Martin Luther King epitomised by ‘Strange Fruit’, ‘Down In Mississippi’ and ‘I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free’ by Nina Simone.
