Chris Thomas King with opening act: Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton

Friday, October 19, 7:30 PM
Performance Hall, Logan Center for the Arts
915 E 60th St

An evening of acoustic Blues with two of the most powerful and interesting artists in Blues music today. We will celebrate the two different paths these artists have set out on to arrive at a place where the musical traditions of their ancestors are kept vital and relevant. Jerron “Bling Boy” Paxton, through his faithful, passionate and technically awe inspiring rendering of the Jazz, Blues and Country music of the 1920’s and 30’s and our headliner Chris Thomas King who has mastered the techniques of old while continuing the tradition of allowing the “rhythm of his own time” to inform everything he plays.

The Logan Center Bluesfest, October 19-21, is an annual public celebration created to honor the South Side roots of the blues’ tradition with concerts, workshops, film, food, and conversation and will feature local and national musicians and artists in spaces throughout the Logan Center. The festival features a series of performances by musicians that reflect the diverse history of the blues tradition; a major archiving program to capture the stories of local and national blues artists; and workshops and educational programming to inspire the next generation of blues musicians and aficionados.

Tickets: $15 General Admission | $5 Under 21 | $35 for Bluesfest Pass (applicable for evening concerts only)
