Living Blues: The Magazine of the African American Blues Tradition is a bi-monthly magazine focused on blues music, and America’s oldest blues periodical. The magazine was founded as a quarterly in Chicago in 1970 by Jim O’Neal and Amy van Singel as editors, and five others as writers. Among them were Bruce Iglauer and Paul Garon. They sold the first copies at the 1970 Ann Arbor Blues Festival.
