TBS 1st Sunday Blues Jam with guest host Tad Walters
January 1, 2017 · Sunday * 6-9:30pm * NO Cover
Got the Sunday blues about having to go back to work tomorrow after a long holiday? Then come on out and help us raise some serious blues. Get your musical “fix” by playing, dancing, or just having a great time. Musicians from all over the Triangle and beyond show up to play.
Our guest host this month kicking off 2017 the right way is the talented Tad Walters!
Walters is a blues musician from Raleigh who started his professional career at 17. He has played with many of the legends of the genre, including Bob Margolin, Pinetop Perkins, Billy Boy Arnold, Dave Myers, John Jackson, Big Bill Morganfield, Willie Smith, Hubert Sumlin, and many others. Walters is quite adept at all of the different “styles” of blues, and takes great pride in his own songs, such as “Cold Blooded Murder,” and “Break ‘Em on Down”. Music Maker helped Walters “If You See K,” featured him on the compilation CD Treasure Box, and helps arrange performances for him with Holeman and Boo Hanks. In addition to periodically accompanying Holeman and Hanks, Walters leads his own band and also performs as a solo artist.
So come on out and enjoy some blues, eat some great food, support the Triangle Blues Society (TBS), meet some new friends or just hang out with some old ones … and have a great time!
