Very Early, Early Bird Blues Show

Since I was selected as a "SpoJo" (Spoleto Citizen Journalist), I try to keep on top of what interests me during our annual Arts Festival.

As a live music fan in general - and Blues in particular - I am looking forward to the Piccolo-Spoleto Early Bird Blues show starring OLD CROW downtown today from 4-7 pm.

The venue is the Mad River Bar & Grille at 32 N. Market and the admission is only $10.

This former church building - just off East Bay - is known as a High Energy Sports Pub/Tavern with 23 hi-def tvs but it also has become a mecca for Blues music since Cumberland’s closed, according to Gary Erwin, producer of Charleston's annual 10-day Blues Bash each February.

OLD CROW, from North Carolina, plays Delta Blues, Ragtime and Old Timey Bluegrass on harmonica, fiddle and Dobrow. If you’ve enjoyed The Wiyos or our local musicmakers The V-Tones, you should have a rollicking good time today at Mad River.

Gary has Blues acts booked at Mad River almost every day - check the schedule at - and Wanda Johnson is set for Friday June 6.

Please check out my SpoJo entry at and follow ALL the great contributions in print, blogs, on Twitter, Videos and even Podcasts.
