What The Deep Blues Festival is all about.

I was reading an article in the New York Times about music critic Robert Palmer, author of the seminal blues history book Deep Blues. In the article Anthony DeCurtis, editor of a new anthology of Palmer's writing entitled Blues and Chaos, says that in his view:

"Palmer had no interest in pop spectacle and craved music that had deep emotional power and broad ambitions. “Bob was all about essences,” .

I am sure that all those associated with The Deep Blues Festival, from the musicians to the fans would agree that that is what DBF is about as well.

Btw, Hand Of Fatima, a film made about Mr.Palmer by his daughter Augusta Palmer will be shown, along with other fantastic music related films, at this years Deep Blues Film Festival.
