Singer/Harmonicist Tracy K Interviewed at AAJ

SOURCE: Published:
Tracy K. Born and raised on the prairies in the small farm community of Beausejour, Manitoba, just 45 minutes east of Winnipeg, Canada, Tracy K has been performing since she was a child. She recalls her first introduction to the blues and how she was introduced and drawn to the early recordings of Sonny Terry

and Brownie McGhee.

Since then, she has built upon this, her foundation for the blues, with her 2007 release Old, New, Borrowed & Blues (Independent), produced by Toronto blues great Jack de Keyzer, earning her international airplay and rave reviews. It is a seamless blend of blues with Chicago, Texas and Delta influences, country and rock, all finely crafted into an original contemporary sound.

AAJ contributor and Cross Harp Chronicles publisher David King spoke with Tracy K about her career, with its various bumps along the road, as well as her new album and approach to blues harmonica.
