Great article. Can't wait to sample.
You know what would be even more "impressive"? The day that ANY theater company actually casts an Arab in the role of Othello. A "moor" by the name and the times of those days was an Arab - NOT white, NOT african, NOT indian, etc. God forbid anyone should ever actually break with stereotypes and tradition and complete a play as WS actually wrote it.
I'm going to this festival this year because of the line-up. I've been waiting far too long to get back to the basics of the blues and have a line-up that hasn't toured up and down the west coast for the past year. I do respect and appreciate all past performers but this year is a treat......
I'm disappointed, as I know many others are, for the Bohemian not to mention Bill Bowker and company when reporting about the Russian River Blues Festival?? He has worked harder than anyone to keep the blues alive in and around Sonoma County and I thank you for that Bill Bowker. Lola
