Blues workshop for students

Tommy Castro credits the venerable Taj Mahal for initiating a tradition of educational workshops as part of each Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise. By Castro’s memory, the elder statesman of the blues first delivered a primer on blues history during a 2005 cruise. Appreciative fans loved the chance to hear the blues man talk about his craft. Workshops of various types have become an integral part of each cruise.

The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Revue continues the tradition before the Oct. 21 show at Three Stages. All four headliners — Tommy Castro, Curtis Salgado, Bernard Allison and Deanna Bogart — will appear on stage, with their instruments, to explain and demonstrate their craft from 2 to 3 p.m. the day of the show.

The workshop is part of the Sacramento Blues Society’s “Blues in the Schools” program and is free to middle school and high school students, accompanying parents and educators. Space is limited. To reserve a spot for your class or your kid contact David Alcock at (916) 342-5584 or [email protected].
