Panelists will discuss how the blues and how music, in general, moves across borders to become recognized across all continents. The panel will be moderated by Leigh Shockey and will include Canadian blues music artist, Shakura S’Aida, Founder and President of Intrepid Artists, Rick Booth, President of Music Marketing International, Bruce Morel, and Producer of the Cahors Blues Festival, Robert Mauries.
