Christian Alan Hansen
Host of “The Monday Morning Blues”
I’m 24 years old and a lover of all things blues music. My love for the blues started at the age of 7 when I heard Kenny Wayne Shepherd for the first ever time. My dad was playing the album “Trouble Is…” which was Kenny Wayne Shepherds second studio album. There were a few tracks on that album that really moved me but the biggest one was “Somehow, Somewhere, Someway” not quite sure what it was about that song but I immediately fell in love with the music and since then I’ve never turned my back on the genre. Interestingly enough I also now have the opportunity to meet and work with a lot of my heros from Buddy Guy, Jimmie Vaughan, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, etc. I work a part time job at the Arcada Theater in St. Charles, IL and we always bring in great blues artists past and present and every now and then I get the chance to meet the people that inspired me to pick up guitar, it truly is the most humbling experience ever.
