What better time to start a discussion on “freedom”. Ken describes the philosophy and some of the process behind the creation of his recording, “Freedom Blues” and lots of live clips give you a musical taste (in the first video below). This is uplifting blues for anyone who wants to diga little deeper. We hope you also enjoy the first three music videos “Bring It All Right Down” and “Omar Khadr’s Blues” from the Freedom Blues CD release concert in Toronto. Thanks to Riddle Films and specifically Liam Romalis and Mako Funasaka for the video production and all the incredible musicians including Amoy Levy, Ciceal Levy, Bucky Berger, Ewan Divitt, Richard Underhill, Perry White, Alastair Whitehead and Denis Keldie. Please tell your friends to check these videos out.
