Washington Legend of Blues
The ARLINGTON ARTS COUNCIL, in partnership with the Washington Blues Society, presents LEGENDS OF THE BLUES, an all-star concert at the Byrnes Performing Arts Center in Arlington on Friday, December 6th at 7:00pm.

The stars aligned on the Arlington Arts Council's desire to sponsor a blues concert this fall.  Lots of them.  Blues stars.  Washington State's blues stars.

Award winners from the state's blues scene will be performing together in Arlington on December 6th, drawing upon several decades of musical wisdom and notoriety, sharing with each other and the audience their passion and unique talents.  It may be that the wonderful Byrnes Performing Arts Center has never been rocked like this since being established in 2007 on the campus of Arlington High School.

The Legends of the Blues concert will feature more than a dozen Washington Blues Society Hall of Fame and Lifetime Achievement honorees, the most prestigious of the Best of the Blues, or BB Awards, voted upon each year by the Washington Blues Society membership over the past twenty years.  These are the living legends among this region's abundance of blues musicians, sharing the stage, taking turns on vocals, trading licks, putting on a show.  These are players who each have lengthy credits as recording and performing artists, with histories too deep to get into their details here, blues men and women certainly worthy of being seen and heard at least this one more time.  Blues fans near and far can testify to that.

Among the evening's performers will be Little Bill and the Blue Notes, honored several years as the state's Best Traditional Blues Act, with that BB Award now presented annually in their honor to new recipients.  Each member of the band individually are multiple award winners, with Little Bill Engelhart on bass, Dick Powell on keyboard and harmonica, Tommy Morgan on drums, and Billy Stapleton on guitar.  

Leading ladies of the blues will be entertaining at this event, with appearances by the vibrant vocalist Patti Allen and the legendary roots music singer-songwriter and guitarist Alice Stuart.  They will be backed up by the stellar Leslie Milton and Chris Leighton on drums.  Chris won the BB Award for Blues Drummer so many times that the Blues Society named that award after him.  

The infamous Nick Vigarino, Jack Cook, and Fat James will be featured on guitars, along with special guests Rod Cook and Mark Riley.  The distinguished Buck England and Mark Whitman will share keyboard duties.  World renowned recording artist Lee Oskar will be featured on harmonica, along with Paul Green who has had the annual BB Award for Blues Harmonica named in his honor.  Special guests also included Patty Mey and Hank Yanda on bass and Mike Lynch on harmonica, rounding out this star-studded show.

Wownow that's a blues concertin Arlington!
