Marquise and The Blue Shoe Project
Marquise Knox
Marquise Knox is just back from Dallas, Texas, where he is a participating member of the ‘Blue Shoe Project’. The Blue Shoe Project is self described as ‘The little non-profit organization from Texas, dedicated to the advancement of America's Music’.

The father and son team of Jeffrey and Michael Dyson, who co-founded the nonprofit organization the Blue Shoe Project to bring the blues to classrooms across Texas, took home the award for best traditional blues album.

Last of the Great Mississippi Delta Bluesmen: Live in Dallas beat out records from Pinetop Perkins, Koko Taylor and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. It was the Blue Shoe Project’s first-ever Grammy nomination.

Henry Townsend, our late great Blues patriarch, earned a Grammy posthumously on this project, and Marquise mentored quite a lot with Henry. In essence the ‘Blues Torch’ has been passed on, and Marquise is certainly keeping it red hot!
