Canton, NY, Apr 30, 2010 — Local musicians Rick Bates, aka Tas Cru, and Chip Lamson bring their brand of blues to the studio for some live music and conversation. They've generated some serious blues world buzz -- and we'll hear music from their kids' cd that pays tribute to bugs. Why bugs? Cru has been performing these songs in kids' programs for years. He says the songs on Even Bugs Sing the Blues are inspired by children's author and illustrator, Eric Carle.
