In the early 1900's Rufus Epps, a son of an ex-slave, acquires land in the Deep South from a dying man. On the land he builds a gigantic barn, which every year on his wedding anniversary becomes the site for a celebration called the night of the blues. Bluesmen come from across the south to compete for the prize money.
After Rufus Epps' death, the barn becomes deserted and the night of the blues is forgotten.
Years after Rufus Epps' death, two bluesmen return to the barn. Cyril Dutty, who is dying, comes to search for his soul, which was taken from him by his father, a voodoo priest. John Leaks, an heroin addict, comes to find redemption from a life of hate and violence.
Blues Power is a fast paced novel that chronicles the power and magic of the blues."
