Washboard Slim & The Bluelights / Opening by Aviva & Lucas
November 4, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Washboard Slim and the Bluelights have been performing their blues, jugband, early jazz and rockabilly mix throughout the United States for over twenty five years. Don’t miss the opportunity to see the group that legendary folk artist Eric Von Schmidt called: “The best since Kweskin’s Jug Band in the sixties.”
WASHBOARD SLIM AND THE BLUELIGHT’S music comes from the root of traditional American popular music. The Bluelights draw on a variety of traditional musical forms and they’ve created a new musical style equally respecting the past and the present – a typical Bluelights performance might include original tunes, early jazz, blues, swing, standards, jug band, early string band, gospel, pop music from the turn of the century and rootsy rock’n’roll. Started in 1986, they continue to perform at festivals, concerts and clubs around the country. In 2008 they won the Connecticut Blues Challenge and entry into the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee.
