OH LAWD, I GOT THOSE OL’ TURKEY DAY BLUES
Here are the upcoming Blind Lemon Pledge Shows for November:
*11/5, 6:30pm-until… Cheers, 1249 Linda Mar Shopping Center, Pacifica
We want to thank everyone who came out to see us at the recent El Cerrito Free Folk Festival. What a great event that was. Workshops, Dance Sessions, and Concerts on 2 stages running most of the day. Lots of good jamming too. A nice variety of music including some blues geezers. We had a really nice reception from the crowd and made some new friends. Thanks to everyone who came up afterwards and said hello. A special thanks to Ken Hayes and all the volunteers who made this event such a fun one.
We kick off the month with our residency gig at Cheers in Pacifica. If you haven’t had a chance to catch us at this great little bar, we hope you will. It is a great place to kick out the jams.
Pistol Pete and Blind Lemon will be performing a 15 minute set at the North Bay Fire Benefit on the 17th at the Noe Valley Town Square. The event goes from 5-9 pm. We will be on @ 5:20. Hope you come out and support this good cause.
Fiddlin’ Cal and Blind Lemon will be doing the guitar/violin duet thing at Café St. Jorge. This is a charming little spot on outer Mission Street. This will be a set of all original tunes featuring Blind Lemon’s award winning material.
Finally, Blind Lemon is proud to announce 4 slots on the first round Grammy FYC ballot. It is from this ballot that the nominations for Grammys are chosen. These slots include Best Americana Song, Best Gospel Song, Best Americana Performance and Best Americana Album, all from his latest album “Backwoods Glance”.
Hope to see you at a gig soon. Please remember to check us out at: www.blues.james-creative.com.
