If you think there's nothing new and exciting coming out of the blues genre, you haven't heard The Mojo Roots. With performances that turn on a dime from a driving, hard-hitting shuffle to an aching, tear-dripping slow blues, the Mojo Roots brand of soul-soaked blues is captivating audiences in their home state of Missouri and beyond. I came across this group in Memphis at the International Blues Challenge. I thought they did a great job of striking a good balance between preserving the blues and furthering them into a new direction. Help me give them a warm Topeka welcome.
