Recorded at the end of 2019, this chat with guitarist/singer/songwriter Jackie Venson foreshadows events that would unfold in Summer 2020. Just a few weeks before launching this episode, Jackie took a stand. She publicly turned down an invitation to play the perennial event “Blues on The Green” which is hosted by Austin City Limits Radio. Listen to the episode to find out why she turned it down and what history-changing result came of it.
