The Cascade Blues Association is excited to announce that in honor of its 25th anniversary a new CD compiling a handful of the finest blues musicians in the state of Oregon will be debuted at the Waterfront Blues Festival.
A dozen acts are represented. That is only a fraction of the great artists calling Oregon home, which is why we have named this disc Puddletown Blues, Vol. 1; because we anticipate more volumes to follow up with more exciting players. In the meantime, Volume 1 includes Kevin Selfe & The Tornadoes, Lisa Mann & Her Really Good Band, Hawkeye Herman, Boogie Bone, Terry Robb, The Strange Tones, Billy D & The Hoodoos, FionaBoyes, Robbie Laws, Woodbrain, Ty Curtis Band and a special track with the late Paul deLay & Duffy Bishop taken from the 2004 Waterfront Blues Festival. Only one track has been released before, Fiona Boyes’ “Love Changing Blues,” a duet with former Muddy Waters guitarist Bob Margolin from her album Live In Atlanta. And yes, we know that Fiona no longer lives in the state, but she considers Portland her home away from home and we will consider her one of our own forever.
All the artists donated their tracks to this CD project and the final mix was completed by Terry Robb and Dennis Carter at Falcon Recording Studios in Portland. A portion of every CD sold (after expenses are met of course) will be earmarked for the Cascade Blues Association’s Musician Relief Fund aimed to help musicians in emergency need. Thanks to all who donated their art and services, and we’ll catch up with the rest of you soon. After all, we want to show the rest of the world just how fortunate we are to live in a blues rich environment and that means a lot more than just these twelve; though they’re a nice start!
A portion of each sale is earmarked for the Musician Relief Fund.
