Opening Acoustic Set – Justus Reece
Second Electric Set – Martin Henry and Freedom Street Band
After such a blistering hot summer we’re starting to feel a little briskness and chill coming in the air. Fall has descended upon us, but we know we do not have to look too far to find great blues music to help warm up those nights. And as always, the monthly general membership meeting of the Cascade Blues Association is the right spot to find just that.
Opening the night for us in October will be a young artist who has caught our attention a few times over the past few years. At only nineteen years of age, Justus Reece has appeared onstage at happenings like the Blues For MS concerts and participated in this year’s Journey To Memphis competition at The Lehrer.
For our electric set, we feature Martin Henry and Freedom Street Band. The Martin Henry and Freedom Street band is based out of the Portland area, comprised of a tight collection of accomplished musicians from throughout the Northwest.
