Today's interview is with Keith Kifer, 'The Blues Wizard'. He came to Bisbee a few years ago and has been filling our little town with the sounds of his custom made 'found object' instruments ever since. He creates instruments out of objects, like hubcaps and gas tanks, and let's not forget suitcases! Growing up in California, we talk about how that impacted his interpretation of the blues, authenticity, and how he found acceptance in Clarksdale, Mississippi, a town steeped in Delta blues history. On the page are some links and a video he filmed here in Bisbee, with other local musicians.
