Billy Branch, a three time Grammy nominee, has organized a night to be remembered as part of the inaugural Logan Center Bluesfest. Coming off the Chicago Blues Festival celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the Sons of Blues, Branch is bringing the blues back to the South Side by hosting a concert with some of his friends from across Chicago including Jimmy Johnson, Eddy Clearwater, Corky Siegel, Lil’ Ed and Melody Angel. Backed by the Sons of Blues, these steller musicians will present unforgettable collaborations in a line-up that is promised to connect with the oldest blues fans, and to inspire new ones.
