[singlepic id=105 w=320 h=240 mode=web20 float=left]Saturday, February 13th, two of Memphis’ finest blues players will join with visiting Eleanor Ellis for an unforgettable evening of country blues, old time music, and gospel at Otherlands Coffee Bar. All three are grounded from birth in these musical traditions and in 1991 did an exquisite recording project, Preachin’ in that Wilderness, a collection of old time and blues songs, many of them written by Reverand Gary Davis.

The show starts at 8 pm, and tickets are available for $10 at Otherlands and Davis-Kidd Booksellers. This is gonna be one stompin’ good time!
