Come check out this rare opportunity to experience all three of these blues legends in concert together.

“Harmonica virtuoso Charlie Musselwhite raises the level of emotional expression on his instrument beyond even the masters he learned from … the grizzled veteran richly decorates his music with telling nuance and chiseled detail.”
– San Francisco Chronicle
“Among the greats of all time, James Cotton blazes on the harp with brilliant virtuosity.”
– Rolling Stone
“John Hammond is a blues legend with a voice like Robert Johnson’s and a demeanor that belies his tear-it-up might before an audience …”
– The New York Times
