"An Evening of British & American Blues"
An incredible evening of British and American Blues! As the elder statesman of British blues John Mayall is renowned as a bandleader, mentor and songwriter. Throughout the '60s, his band, the Bluesbreakers, acted as a finishing school for the leading British blues-rock musicians of the era. Guitarists Eric Clapton, Peter Green, and Mick Taylor joined his band in a remarkable succession in the mid-'60s, honing their chops with Mayall before going on to join Cream, Fleetwood Mac, and the Rolling Stones, respectively. 2011 Blues Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy Winner John Hammond remains one of the world’s premier acoustic blues artists. To date John Hammond has been honored with a total of 8 Blues Music Awards and an additional 10 nominations.
