Dayton has a rather active Blues scene, thanks in part to the Dayton Blues Society. They recently held their International Blues Challenge qualifier and the winners were The SoulFixers and Chris Yakopcic. Chris is releasing a new album this fall, tentatively titled The Next Place I Leave, and this episode features a world premier of the title cut! Learn more about Chris and stay updated on the progress of the album on his official website:
