Blues By The Sea - 2011

Listening to the Blues is good.

Hearing a talented legend is even better.

Did I mention this was a FREE concert?

James Cotton is a master of the Harp. The man has played with the best and learned from them all.

Gary Erwin a.k.a. Shrimp City Slim, is quite a Blues keys player himself and he puts together great shows.

Gary's 17-day February Blues Bash has an enormous following as he brings in talent from EVERYWHERE.

Sharing the bill Sunday at Freshfield Village - Kiawah - was Marcelo Ponce Y Viviana Dallas from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

This couple plays terrific Blues and Gospel and run an Escuela de Musicos in B.A.

They are on their first trip ever to North America. They were surrounded by blooming azaleas and Spanish moss-laded oaks as they sang our Songs of the South.

Imagine going to a foreign country and singing their national folk music. Yikes.

Ike & Val Woods, dynamic husband and wife team, are based in Miami.

They brought a joyous sound of Blues, R&B, vintage soul and some Florida Funk.

Yes. There was plenty of dancing.

How could you sit still?

(My shady spot was easy to get because I showed up early. Being across the street from a Newton Farms store meant food and beverage was right at hand. Chef from Cajun Country Kitchen in Hanahan was there with his colorful tasty Louisiana creations too.) Thanks for stopping by.
