We're getting excited for the Bradenton Blues Festival, which kicks off this Saturday, December 5, at Bradenton's Riverwalk. And in addition to the all-star lineup of musicians--which includes Janiva Magness, Rick Estrin and the Nightcats, Girls With Guitars and many more--photographer Joseph A. Rosen will be selling and signing copies of his book Blues Hands, which features his photographs of famous blues musicians' hands and how they help share the story and history of blues music. You can find Rosen in the Blues Festival's Sponsor Pavilion during sets, or at the band merchandise tent next to the stage between performances. Here's just a sampling of his work.
"I love the little kid on the lower right!" says Rosen.
