Cerys digs into her collection to play blues of all hues and film maker David Lynch talks about the blues that have inspired his own music, music he calls "Modern Blues". Known for cult classic television shows such as Twin Peaks and films including Mulholland Drive, Dune and Eraserhead, music has always played a crucial role in Lynch's work.

From cutting edge contemporary sounds to scratchy old vinyl from the past, whether it's from Memphis, Mali, or Manchester, no stone is left unturned in the search for the best of the blues.
