Seth Walker, Keb Mo, Robert Cray and blues events

Tonight: Bluesy, rootsy, sometimes New-Orleans type music is what to expect from Seth Walker tonight at Moondog's. He's an up-and-coming singer/songwriter and an original talent who was a pal of Sean Costello --  the music should be worth the effort.

Blues picnic

The Blues Society of Western Pa. is having a blues picnic Sunday from 2-9 p.m. at the Boston Waterfront. You don't have to be a society member to go, but if you are, you'll enjoy yourself just that much more!

A picnic isn't a real picnic without live music, and the blues will be provided, with relish, by: Pamela Bick, Shot O' Soul with Bubs McKeg, the Ian Arthur Band, and the Mystic Knights with Chizmo Charles & Frank Giovi.

Blue Monday

If you're a fan of Keb Mo and/or Robert Cray, you can catch both at The Palace Theater in Greensburg Monday night. Keb Mo can do everything from channel Robert Johnson to writing his own poignant contemporary music. And Cray has been a steady force with his band for years.

So, along with the local blues band calendar, you don't have any reason not to hear some fine music this weekend.

Blues highway

The Blues Society of Western Pa. (see above) is sponsoring trip to Memphis in February to take blues fans to the International Blues Challenge and the events surrounding it. Check the details and see if you can make it. By all accounts it's a great blues-filled trip.
