American Blues Legends: Otis Taylor Band / Alvin Youngblood Hart Solo
Blues fans mark the date for this unmissable double bill of celebrated American blues legends.
From Memphis, Alvin Youngblood Hart is one of the world’s leading new blues powers. Raised on the music of great American bluesmen like Charlie Patton, Robert Johnson and Taj Mahal, the Grammy Award winning vocalist/guitarist plays powerful contemporary blues rooted in the Delta, blending technique and feeling, structure and spontaneity, tradition and freshness.
“Boy got thunder in his hands! Sure does” (Taj Mahal)
Otis Taylor is a musical alchemist and a true blues innovator, playing a unique electric version of Delta-inspired music. Haunting guitar and banjo, soaraway violin, heavy rhythmic groove, crashing guitar solos, and a combination of gruff vocals, shouts and yells of raw passion create his signature "trance blues".
“Taylor’s imaginative and sometimes-reckless instrumentation satisfies your soul while his brilliant, thought-provoking wordplay massages your brain” (Washington Post).
Concert ends at 10pm
