I decided to take off my country girl hat off recently to learn a little bit about blues music. Justin Aron is a Winnipeg-based blues artist who has performed in famous blues clubs in Dallas, Chicago, as well as other Canadian cities. He has the same sound as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Freddie King and Robert Cray. Aron, along with his band Dirty Pool, released their debut CD Juke Joint in 2014 and are set to release their second album later this year. I sat down with Justin so he could tell me what blues music is to him, what makes it so special. He describes blues “as a true labour of love.”

Hi all. I’m Nanci Dagg. I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and have lived my entire life here. There is nothing I like better than supporting local artists followed by supporting Canadian artists. Although I was a classic rock gal, my go to genre is country. Something about this music that just makes me feel great. I can be found at most country music concerts and shows (from someone’s house to really large venues) taking lots of pictures. Music and photography are two of my passions. Add to this mix, writing about artists, well let’s say, life doesn’t get better than this.
