CD submissions accepted! Guest writers always welcome!!

I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Gypsy Carns, The Blues Preacher,started performing in clubs in 1963 and making records in ‘66. He has anointed the United States, Japan, France, England,Germany, Italy, Amsterdam & The Netherlands,China, Israel and Brazil; with his vocals, percussion, and eclectic 12-string bottleneck guitar & Dobro prowess. Carns is also known as a blues songwriter, co-penning a Koko Taylor tune with Fred James and Mary Ann Brandon that garnered 2 GRAMMY nominations. Blues Revue states: “Gypsy Carns, A one-man wrecking crew who plays a “stompbox” tambourine / kick drum combination, harp, 12-string resonator guitar….this is hammering, powerful stuff, driven by Carns’ energy and rough-hewn vocals”. In 2008 Gypsy won the distinct honor of “Christian Blues Artist of the Year” at the Momentum Awards in Brentwood, TN. Using the delta-blues musical format, Gypsy combines Messianic lyrics for a unique blend of authentic American music. His energy and commitment are evidenced through his powerful live performances.
