Our first concert in Montenegro was at the Cultural Information Center and filmed for public television.  Thanks to the magnificent Maja Popovic for organizing everything.  She brings a wide range of great arts programs to her center and we were honored to be a part of it.  Here are some highlights from the broadcast.

The next day we had a workshop with students.  There are many talented students there and we were happy to work with them in a workshop where we inquired:  “How does the blues give you a chance to express emotions?”

As is our custom, we got everybody up and moving, then playing together to explore the power of the blues!
