Music was an integral part of our everyday lives. From classical to Jazz to rock and of course my Grandfather’s favorite, the blues. In the evenings he would go into his den and play the blues and we’d sit outside the door and listen. It’s odd but even as a child there was something about the sound that moved me, the grittiness even though I didn’t understand what that was at the time. The music told a story and I liked to listen.
So when I came to SL it seemed natural for me to be drawn to the Blues and my good fortune to find it at The Riverside. I came to the river my first day in SL and never left.
