I'm 31 and I know there are others my age here too...so I hope the age
spread of blues fans is more varied than you think. But I appreciate your
thoughtful post. And I share your concern. I know that I'm not getting much
past the oldies in my blues listening so I don't know if there will be
artists to sustains this current Blues boom...but that's my humble opinion.
I've still got a lotta years to get to the new ones.
