In Memphis for the Blues Music Awards

After having spent three weeks in Mississippi with Hypnotic Wheels to record their new album, including several songs with drummer Cedric Burnside, who was nominated for the Grammys in 2016 for his Descendants of Hill Country album, Tia, along with Marc Glomeau and Gilles Chabenat, went to Memphis to attend the prestigious Blues Music Awards ceremony.
