It’s All The Blues with Mr. Z Friday nights 7pm-10pm only on WFIT 89.5 FM and wfit.or

If you're in Clarksdale, Miss., home of the Delta blues, everybody says you have to go to Red's juke joint. The hole-in-the-wall club is the real deal. It's just a small room, a few tables and a fridge full of beer. Red lights are strung around a low ceiling. On the night we visit, octogenarian Leo "Bud" Welch plays in the center of the room, hunched over a sparkly, hot pink, electric guitar. Red Paden, the owner, sits out front, surveying from behind the bar.

Ana Popovic

Add to the mix her incredible stage presence, all of which makes her an irresistible force in the world of contemporary blues music. As the only female guitar-player, Ana was added to the 2014 'all-star' Experience Hendrix lineup. She’s been nominated for five Blues Music Awards and appeared on the cover of Vintage Guitar and Guitar Player Gear Guide and American Blues Scene.
