Chasing the Blues: A Traveler’s Guide to America’s Music by TWUC members, travel writer Josephine Matyas and writer-musician Craig Jones is the book to take on any visit to the heart of the American-born blues (Backbeat Books, September 2021). The practical travel guide takes readers into the songs, stories, and styles of music that flooded out of the Mississippi Delta . . . and then infused themselves into every form and genre of music in North America, and eventually the world. Chasing the Blues is a priceless guide to appreciating an invaluable land, the people, and their life circumstances that influenced popular song.
