For some, the blues is a musical genre. For Rory Block, it’s a lifestyle.
While that may sound like hyperbole, Block’s fascination with the blues began at age 15 and has stayed with her in the nearly five decades since.
“It’s really a personal matter and it’s very hard to tell other people how to love something that you love,” Block said. “It’s just something that sounds so beautiful, so soulful, so powerful. All those things that drew me to it, in the beginning, are the same things that have been such a part of me for so long.” (Montgomery Advertiser)
