Blues To Do in March

February 27, 2014

Blues To Do March

Starting our third month of weekly live blues shows. If you’ve been checking in, we’ve showcased some stellar bands and blues players that truly belong on the world stage – and you get too see ’em here for free every Tuesday. Here’s who we have scheduled for March…

MARCH 4th – 8PM
MARDI GRAS with SNAKE OIL
featuring ROD COOK and MARK RILEY
special guest ERIC “TWO SCOOPS” MOORE
Rod Cook and Mark Riley – two of Seattle’s finest blues guitarists – team up together in this grouping, which is rarely booked due to the busy schedules of all of these excellent players. Also featured is a short set of original boogie-woogie piano from award winning songwriter and piano man, Eric “Two Scoops” Moore.

MARCH 11th – 8PM
SETH FREEMAN ALL-STAR SESSION
featuring ALICE STUART and NEAL FALLEN
Alice Stuart has a long NW history as a folk artist, one of the first women to lead her own electric band, she was one of Frank Zappa’s early “Mothers of Invention,” played at the Berkeley Folk Festival in ’64 and ’68 with folks like Mississippi John Hurt, Jerry Garcia and many more. BluesiIcon Taj Mahal has this to say abut Alice: “She paved the road Bonnie Raitt traveled.” Rising blues superstar Seth Freeman will also be playing his lap steel along with Alice’s acoustic guitar and Neal’s harmonica. (We’ll also be celebrating Neal’s birthday, too!)

MARCH 18th – 8PM
SETH FREEMAN ALL-STAR SESSION
featuring ROD COOK
Seth has just released his debut band CD in addition to an acoustic CD, and Rod Cook is really the best in Seattle at both electric and acoustic blues. These two are magic as an acoustic duo. There may be harmonica in this evening too.

MARCH 25th – 8PM
SETH FREEMAN ALL-STAR SESSION
featuring CHRIS LEIGHTON and SCOTT E. LIND
A very hot March night with Chris Leighton, the most award winning and most utilized drummer in the NW blues scene, along with Scott E. Lind, the feistiest Seattle area blues guitarist who was Charles White’s favorite for years.
