Tonight, another Garden House Blues night comes to the Garden House (2336 15th Avenue S.), featuring Bonnie McCoy and Mary Flower.
Bonnie McCoy, the niece of Memphis Minnie, is making her West Coast debut. Having grown up with the blues, she took time to raise a family, but now she is reaching for her dream of continuing the family blues tradition. Hear a clip of Bonnie McCoy here.
Guitarist and lap slide player Mary Flower specializes in “the intricate, harmonically subtle Piedmont style, with its good-timey, ragtime feel.” She was nominated for both “Best Acoustic Artist” and “Best Acoustic Album” in the 2012 Blues Music Awards in Memphis. See a clip of Mary Flower here.
All ages are welcome. The music starts at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7 p.m. so you can come early and order dinners under $10 delivered to your table from Inay’s Kitchen and Travelers Thali House.
