Promoting the upcoming Burnaby Blues & Roots Festival, Jimmy D. Lane has been commissioned to #TweettheBlues this week and today is your last day to have your heartache and sorrow shared with the world through song, over Twitter.
Post an update on Twitter (even directly through the TweetTheBlues website) with your worries and troubles, and Jimmy will record and Tweet back a customized blues tune just for you that you can watch him perform online.
