A who’s who of the blues comes to Folsom
It’s called a Blues Harmonica Blowout for good reason.
Mark Hummel and his band come to Three Stage on Jan. 11. There, they are joined by an all-star harmonica lineup: Lazy Lester (who worked with Slim Harpo and Lightnin’ Slim), Rick Estrin (of Little Charlie & The Nightcats), Grammy-nominee Kenny Neal, Kim Wilson (The Fabulous Thunderbirds), and guitarists Charlie Baty (in a rare reunion with his Little Charlie colleague Estrin) and Joe Louis Walker (who has worked with everybody, including John Lee Hooker, Muddy Water, Jimi Hendrix and more).
All these musicians pay tribute to Jimmy Reed at this special performance sponsored by Capital Public Radio.
“This series was started in 1991 and has grown to become an international event,” noted Three Stages Executive Director Dave Pier. “It sold out briskly last year here at Three Stages and we expect this to be a popular event this year.”
Mark Hummel’s Blues Harmonica Blowout will perform in Three Stages at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan 11. Tickets are $19 to $29 with premium tickets a$39; students with ID get in for $12.
