Roland van Straaten has selected a handful of songs for his program 'Temptation Blues', which he would take along on his journey to the lonely island. He plays as a wandering minstrel on Italian village squares and in the spotlight of festival stages.  Sometimes he sings around generously set mediterranian tables, which he has seen so luxurious only in Fellini's films, sometimes he plays at night with friends on the marble steps of a awe inspiring cathedral.
