One hour on one artist, their story in their words and all the music--including their influences.

Blues Quest is a living history of the origins of American music told one musician at a time. We interview contemporary blues-based artists and create an audio documentary of their beginnings, influences and unique contributions. Our goal is to preserve this rich musical heritage, raise its awareness and appreciation in the world and keep this music alive for generations to come.

We accomplish this in several ways: by having the artists tell their stories in their words, making each show a primary source documentary; by devoting each one-hour episode to a single artist, creating an in-depth experience with each musician; by featuring each artist's influences, paying homage to the history of the blues, its origins in African-American culture and impact on modern music; by creating a unique showcase for contemporary blues artists; by exposing listeners to artists and music rarely heard on radio; and by forming partnerships with visionary public radio stations, giving them a unique experience to offer their listeners--making their stations more valuable to their communities.
