The Book Cellar
Join local blues experts Bruce Iglauer and Patrick A. Roberts for a discussion about their new book, Bitten by the Blues: The Alligator Records Story!
Bitten by the Blues, by Bruce Iglauer and Patrick A. Roberts, is a memoir of a life immersed in the blues—and the business of the blues. No one person was present at the creation of more great contemporary blues music than Iglauer: he produced albums by Koko Taylor, Albert Collins, Professor Longhair, Johnny Winter, Lonnie Mack, Son Seals, Roy Buchanan, Shemekia Copeland, and many other major figures. The book takes readers behind the scenes, offering unforgettable stories of those charismatic musicians and classic sessions, delivering an intimate and unvarnished look at what it’s like to work with the greats of the blues. Join us for a lively discussion!
