During an interview with Down At The Cross Roads, a blog about the intersection of faith and blues, Carolyn Wonderland elaborates on the experience of the artist, audience and venue from her perspective, "When I was thrown out of school, it was the blues clubs that were most open arms – and less emphatic about ID checking! I loved the fact that anyone could get up on that stage and jam with anyone else with a basic understanding of blues forms. I love that it requires more soul and personality than intellect to inject yourself into the music. I love the people who let me stink up the place a few dozen times and am happy to back other folks while they go through that phase as well!"
