Blues Master Tickets On Sale
David Clouston - Wed 06:30 AM 08/22/2012
The music is killer. The funky, thick, sweaty blues vibe is palpable! The old church sanctuary rings with hand-clapping as the musicians’ chords and wails pepper the packed pews.
Order your tickets now. That’s our best advice, for it’s the Blues Masters at the Crossroads. It’s a two-night music extravaganza of soul and blues highlights and your seat awaits. But be quick — remember there are only 450 of them. Wait at your own risk!
To celebrate our 15th Blues Masters we’ve assembled one of our hottest musical lineups ever! We’ve got The Campbell Brothers with Calvin Cooke, Ted Beard and Aubrey Ghent: African-American sacred steel music — a blend of gospel, soul, rock and jazz — the pedal steel guitar moans and wails, a magnificent and moving sound! The electrifying Shemekia Copeland shares gritty, passionate blues with a powerful, knock-your-socks-off amazing voice. Mud Morganfield, son of the legendary Muddy Waters, is gracing our stage, as are Tail Dragger, Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton and Ironing Board Sam. More artists are still to be added. Audiophiles rave about the sound quality of this event — our 88-year-old gorgeous Gothic-style church sanctuary features perfect acoustics. And the talent is real and legendary.
