Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Kenny Neal stands tall among the younger generation of blues players. His trademark brand of blues, featuring a combination of Louisiana swamp blues, funky rhythms and soul-deep vocals, powered by his slashing guitar playing and--on his solo albums--loping harmonica, puts him at the forefront of contemporary blues players. Hes the second-generation bluesman under the Neal brand following in his fathers footsteps, the great late Raful Neal. Slim Harpo gave him his first harmonica and by the time he was 17, he was performing with his dad and Buddy Guy. Hes recorded extensively since 1987; including 9 albums with Alligator Records and 3 for Telarc. His latest effort is Bloodline on Cleopatra Records produced by Tom Hambridge and features several generations of family blues musicians.  Kenny Neal
