Rousing Canadian bluesman Matt Andersen talks about Levon Helm’s studio, hitting Nashville, and sinking to the depths of Coal Miner’s Blues.

Andersen is one hell of a blues singer and guitarist, not only winning multiple awards and acclaim but earning undying devotion from those who know their stuff.

The kindly Canadian talks about whether awards mean anything, recording his new album Coal Miner’s Blues at Levon Helms’ studio just before his passing, moving across Canada, how he choose his covers, and whether he prefers his crowds raucous or reverent.
