When people think of blues they usually don't think of Boston. The Mississippi Delta, Chicago, Memphis, New Orleans, Kansas City and Texas all have deeper roots in the blues. Yet Boston -- and New England in general -- has nurtured scores of national blues musicians, executives, producers and advocates of the music. Not only have they flourished here, their legacy has created a breadth of quality in the blues genre that rivals any city or region.So this is a collection of their struggles and triumphs in the business -- about what they do and why they've chosen this music. In many cases, it wasn't their choice at all because the blues chose them.Today's musicians' tales of love lost and found, jealousy, revenge, happiness and sorrow may be told in different ways as they bend and reshape the notes of the masters before them. But really, it's always been about us -- as humans. That's the common thread.Blues invites the listener to understand the past, to question the present and to respect the history and founders of this great American music.

About the Author:

Art Simas, 47, has been covering blues artists in New England for more than seven years. While some of his articles have appeared in national blues publications such as Blues Revue and Experience Hendrix magazines, his main work has been on the local level in documenting and promoting New England-based artists. He served as editor of the Boston Blues Society bimonthly and The Blues Audience monthly newsletters for three years, and is editor of the Blues Spectrum, the quarterly magazine of the New England Blues Society, which was formed in 1998.A relative newcomer to the blues, it was the raw, emotive sounds spilling from the musty doorways in New Orleans that caught his attention in 1992 - and wouldn't let go. He had to find out more.He is the Special Sections Editor for the Worcester Telegram & Gazette newspaper in Worcester, Mass. In previous jobs he was the editorial manager at an environmental consulting firm; production manager and senior copy editor for a monthly computer magazine; a political reporter for a daily newspaper; and sports editor of a weekly newspaper.E-mail: docblues6@aol.com.
