A show in music, images and storytelling about the birth of the blues in the Mississippi Delta. Bo Brocken (stage name: Big Bo)has mastered the pre-war blues styles of the Mississippi Delta and neighbouring regions like no other. He has been performing and telling the story of the birth of the blues for over 30 years, now in the form of a beautiful theatrical piece. After the successful theatre tour “Trouble Soon Be Over” with Marc Stakenburg and Frédérique Spigt, Big Bo continues his musical journey. In an intimate one-person setting, Bo tells about the origins of the Blues, larded with the music as it was heard in the years from early slavery to the migration to the big cities in the 1950s in the United States.
