Blues great Tinsley Ellis channels the Grateful Dead with Blues is Dead!

Ellis is a longtime Atlanta fixture who played the blues before playing the blues was cool, and was among the first of the New Generation blues heroes that included Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Duke Robillard and Ronnie Earl. Ellis founded The Heartfixers in 1981, and carried that band to regional fame before he broke away for a solo career and signed with Alligator Records, the groundbreaking blues record label. His new album was released on his own label, Heartfixer Music."
