SPECIAL EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT
Concert in the Woods: Blues Night
Don’t miss this special evening of red hot blues music with three of the most respected blues masters in the Mid Atlantic region.
Linwood Lee Taylor recently finished a four-year stint touring the world with a band led by blues legend Joe Lewis Walker. Not many Blues artists can say they’ve recorded with H.R. of the Bad Brains as well as performed with Albert Collins, but Taylor can. When you catch his show at the Hard Bargain Farm stage this year, they will have just returned from a series of gigs in the Czech Republic. He has also led his own electric blues trio for over 25 years and together they have performed to rave reviews at most of the major festivals and clubs in the region.
Bassist Steve Wolf has been a fixture on the Washington music scene since the late 60s. During that time he has performed throughout the United States and Europe with such D.C. area notables as Danny Gatton, Tom Principato, Phil Wiggins, The Nighthawks, Catfish Hodge, Deanna Bogart, Bob Margolin, Big Joe Maher, and a diverse group of national artists ranging from Chuck Berry, The Coasters and Bo Diddly to Doctor John, Brian Auger and Springsteen sax man Clarence Clemons. His well respected work in the blues arena has led him to back Chicago blues legends Sunnyland Slim, Pine Top Perkins, Charlie Musselwhite, Guitar Junior (Luther Johnson), and many others.
Steve will be joined in the rhythm section by drummer extraordinaire Joe Wells. In addition to being regular members of The Linwood Taylor Band, Joe and Steve remain one of the most in demand rhythm teams in the region, backing international recording artists such as Tom Principato and Memphis Gold. Joe Wells has provided his rock solid drum grooves to such luminaries as Coco Montoya, Bob Margolin, Bill Kirchen, Jimmy Thackery and many others.
