[Jan 27, 28]
Mendocino Theater Company will host a musical multi-media event on Friday and Saturday, January 27 & 28. "American Blues Story" is guaranteed to give you a new appreciation for the genre of American roots music. Showtime is 7:30pm.
From heartaches to hard times, these deep emotions have especially been expressed in the blues. Going back to Robert Johnson and other bluesmen in the deep south, we will follow the Mississippi River through Memphis, St Louis, and Chicago and the variations that evolved in each new area. During the sixties and seventies British rockers brought the blues back to the US via The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Eric Clapton.
Tickets will be available at BrownPaperTickets.com and at MTC box office day of the show. $25 for reserved seating, $20 for general admission and $25 at the door. Contact Pattie for more information - 707-937-1732.
