* LINSEY ALEXANDERLINSEY ALEXANDER

Time: 9:00 pm

Born in Mississippi and raised in Memphis, Tennessee, Linsey Alexander discovered a down to earth city that truly understands and appreciates music on Chicago’s southside. In much the same way as many great blues artists before him, he grew up in a poor but honest and hard working family, learning early on that music has the power to lift the spirit and comfort the soul. In Linsey’s own words, “Blues is not hard- it’s just a documentary about life.”

15
* JOHN KILMERJOHN KILMER

Time: 10:00 pm

John writes songs that sound as if they may have been written a hundred years ago, and sings them as though he’s sitting around the bonfire in a Hooverville somewhere back in the 1930’s.

* MISSISSIPPI HEATMISSISSIPPI HEAT

Time: 9:00 pm

TRADITIONAL BLUES WITH A UNIQUE SOUND. . . As band leader and composer, Pierre’s vision has never wavered since he founded his band in 1991. His mantra is clear and focused. The band has always had an ensemble sound: all musicians are featured and welcome to contribute on stage and on recordings. His music is traditional because it is steeped in Chicago’s golden sounds of the 1950′s, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Jimmy Rogers, all the great harp players… Big and Little Walter, The Sonny Boy Williamsons, Junior Wells, George Smith, and many extraordinary contemporaries such as Kim Wilson, Rod Piazza and Paul deLay. On the other hand, Pierre’s blues is unique because he dislikes to tread on old beaten paths. He always writes new stuff.

* OMAR COLEMANOMAR COLEMAN

Time: 10:00 pm
