November 15 - Spider John Koerner & Tony Glover - SOLD OUT
Minnesota music legends Spider John Koerner and Tony Glover, along with their colleague, the late Dave Ray, were stars of the 1960s folk music and blues revival. Their raw exciting performances on albums and at venues like the Newport Folk Festival set the standard for future interpreters of authentic country blues. 50 years later they are national treasures, whose rich performances bring the American roots tradition vividly to life. Guitarist, singer, songwriter Spider John is famed for his rhythmic idiosyncratic stylings of classic American folk songs and originals, and was an acknowledged influence on Bob Dylan and John Lennon. Seminal blues harmonica player Tony Glover literally wrote the book on the instrument by authoring its still most widely used instruction guide. An influential artist in his own right, Tony has taught harmonica to David Johansen of the New York Dolls and Mick Jagger. It is a special event when these two masters come together on the same stage.
