Talking Bout The Blues had the honor and pleasure to ask Shein Die, Blues lover and historian, behind the most provocative and telling images of Blues Artists, Culture, and Community a few questions about their journey with the Blues and why it’s important to preserve the rich heritage of the Blues.
Please give us a brief background on your Blues journey.
SHEIN DIE –
It was because I like Rock n Roll that I decided to explore its

have to make a pilgrimage to Clarksdale, Mississippi where the Blues
was born ~ Dockery Plantation…
Do you remember the record you heard that made you fall in love with the Blues?
