The Music

Our 2019 lineup includes the best in local performers featuring Blues, R&B, Latin, Folk, Americana, and, for the kids, the entertaining & interactive Rick Goldin.

When blues legend James Montgomery plays the harmonica, he "brings it on home". While growing up in Detroit, James learned first-hand from the masters at the legendary "Chesmate": James Cotten, James Lee Hooker and Jr. Wells. Over the years, James has carried on in the tradition and continues to be a vital presence in blues as one of the most dynamic performers on the scene.
