January 26 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This reunion, steeped in Blues tradition, answers the musical question: Where does the blues begin? Where does it end?. Get ready for a journey that arrives at the heart of it. (Hint: It doesn’t matter!)
Johnny Long learned his blues in East St Louis and went on to Chicago under the watchful eye of his adopted father, Homesick James. He now tours the US, with two releases on Delta Groove Records. Get to know him at johnlongblues.com
John Long and Dexter Payne go way back in the blues, first introduced by Don “Bar BQ Bob” DeBacker. John, in turn, introduced Dexter and Lionel Young, who went on to win the IBC together, and toured in the US, Canada and France.
