Blues Music Awards on Thursday, May 8, and we’re looking forward in particular to our Yellow Dog Records showcase, which takes place Thursday afternoon, prior to the big awards ceremony that night, and features three artists who have been on quite a roll lately. First, at 12:45 p.m., our always-in-demand, deep-blues dynamo Colin Linden — who recently toured as Bob Dylan’s guitarist and wrapped his second season on ABC’s Nashville — steps up to the mic, ready to rivet the crowd with his world-renowned guitar mastery.
Then, at 1:45 p.m., Cassie Taylor — just a few weeks removed from her month-plus European tour — brings her blues-soul power to the stage, playing songs from her latest album Out of My Mind and more.
At 2:45, the piano lid gets lifted as closes our showcase with songs from her brand-new Yellow Dog Records release Jigsaw Heart (out May 6). Eden is touring a ton surrounding the arrival of her fantastic new album, so she will be at the peak of her formidable powers as she takes the stage.
It all goes down at BB King’s at 143 Beale Street. This is free and open to the public, so come join us as we bask in these soul-satisfying sounds!
