Blue Mule talks about their music and creative process. Three cuts from “In a Hurry” are included: “Broke Billy,” “More to Life,” and “Leave These Blues Behind.” “The Venue” was the working title for an upcoming music series now titled “Roots to Rock.” This is a “mini-show.” Roots2Rock is now a live streamed music show created and produced by New Moon Creative Media, LLC.
