Blues Hall of Fame member Joe Louis Walker, touring in support of his latest Alligator album Hornet’s Nest, performs at the Towne Crier Café in Beacon on Saturday, January 17. “Without a doubt one of the most exciting and innovative artists gracing contemporary blues,” effuses Allmusic.com.
Walker’s career began in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s and involved collaboration with some greats from the rock side of blues, namely his former roommate Mike Bloomfield. Since then, he has covered all the blues bases with fire and sophistication.
Showtime is at 8:30 p.m. Tickets cost $20 in advance and $25 at the door. For tickets and additional information, call (845) 855-1300 or visit www.townecrier.com. The Towne Crier Café is located at 379 Main Street in Beacon.
