A Solo Evening with a Blues Great
John Hammond has been mining the vein of American Blues for most of his 40-year career. Hammond is an authentic voice, part of the great legacy of American musical invention. A Grammy Award winner and nominated for four others, his most recent CD, Push Comes to Shove, is a reinvention of himself. Hammond has played with musical greats and friends including Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf, Duane Allman, Michael Bloomfield, J.J. Cale, Tom Waits and The Band. Tonight he performs a solo acoustic set that ranges from raw and dirty to the emotionally powerful.
