Mike Munson – Slide Guitar Player and Evangelist for the Blues
January 11 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
http://great-smoky-mountains-park.org/?p=751 Mike Munson has established himself as an adept slide guitar player and an evangelist for the blues.
For a number of years Munson has been mentored by Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, the renowned owner of the oldest juke joint in North America, the Blue Front Cafe. Munson thrived under the mentorship of Holmes, building a body of work that blends his Midwestern roots with his Mississippi travels. From sad and somber slow tunes to swampy, caterwauling stompers Mike Munson masters blues composition and performance, often dark and heavy, yet lyrically compelling and altogether dance-able.
