Livin' With the Blues in Salina, 2002 Sneak Preview
by Dave Glackin

Chad Kassem's 5th Annual Blues Masters at the Crossroads festival at Blue Heaven Studios in Salina, Kansas, was an incredible event. Here, to whet your appetite, are images of nearly all the artists who appeared. A full article will follow.

Also shown is the historic Mutual Musicians Foundation in Kansas City. The author was fortunate enough to have a tour of it, located in the heart of the old Kansas City jazz & blues area, by Ramonda Doakes. Ramonda is the past president of the MMF, and basically saved it from ruin.
