Christmas Blues

The Blues, as a genre, is not exactly known for its fidelity to holy days. But Christmas has inspired a whole subset of the blues. Bill Ferris is with the Center for the Study of the American South at the University of North Carolina. He is The Story's resident folklorist, and this Christmas he talks to Dick about growing up with the blues at Christmastime - and he brings along with him some wonderful musical surprises. This story originally aired on December 25, 2006.
