He was introduced to 80-year old bluesman, Jamie Bluesboy Powell and septuangenerian harpist Sammy Lee.
The three were introduced a few years ago and their musical talents meshed, and Generation Blues Experience was formed.
We got to speak with Ray and Jamie about their finding the music in their lives and then meeting each other and how the experience changed their outlooks.
They told stories of going out to jams and blowing the roof off the clubs and how some of their songs came to be. We also heard music from their album Private Angel.
