The Blues is our big passion – in all its many facets. Our motto is to discover new music and to preserve the old. bluesnews informs about news from the blues scene, interviews artists, remembers pioneering musicians and groundbreaking recordings in the “Blues History” series, but also presents talented newcomers. Every issue of bluesnews features more than 100 CD, LP, DVD and book reviews, plus tour/festival previews, concert reports and much more.
Our authors are independent, knowledgeable, and diligently research their articles about all styles of Blues, from traditional to modern, from acoustic Blues to Blues-Rock. Related styles such as Zydeco, Cajun, Soul or Southern-Rock are also taken into consideration.
Since 1995, bluesnews has been published quarterly; it is a magazine that appeals to Blues lovers as well as Blues musicians, festival organizers and Blues agencies. It is the editorial policy of bluesnews to keep in close contact with its readers in order to obtain as many suggestions and requests as possible. Because bluesnews is not only a special interest magazine for Blues, Blues-Rock and related styles, it is also a magazine made by Blues fans for Blues fans.
