Great news for tablet junkies and American Songwriter subscribers who have iPad and Android devices: the May/June 2015 edition is now available for download! The dead-tree edition doesn’t hit stands until May 5, but you don’t have to wait to dive into our “Blues Issue.”
In this special issue, we take an in-depth look at the legendary figures who made blues music history. We catch up with Steven Johnson of the Robert Johnson Foundation as he seeks to maintain his grandfather’s legacy. We travel the country, from Piedmont to Chicago, pinpointing the blues men and women who paved the way for future generations of musicians. Elsewhere, we catch up with some of today’s best and brightest blues musicians, like Tedeschi Trucks Band and Adia Victoria. Plus, we give you a behind-the-scenes look at our first Live and In Person Event in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
