Clark Stern & Chuck Cotton
April 22, 2015 · 8pm
Bluesman Clark Stern has played piano alongside genre notables such as Lurrie Bell, Anson Funderburgh and Billy Boy Arnold, but he’s joined tonight by local drum veteran Chuck Cotton ( Bob Margolin’s band). Though Stern and Cotton both sing, the focus is on the simple interplay beneath the two instrumentalists, which really gets cooking once Stern’s piano stand starts shaking from his heavy hands. Expect plenty of boogie-woogie and jump blues when they draw tunes from traditional and gospel repertoires, as well as Stern’s originals.
