TBS Blues Jam Sunday, March 9
The March TBS Blues Jam at Papa Mojo's Roadhouse has been moved to Sunday, March 9.
Come out to this special jam as we celebrate and pay tribute to the iconic Durham bluesman John D. Holman with host Charley Ward and special guest John Dee Holeman. Check out photos of the TBS Jam at Papa Mojo's and more on the TBS Facebook page - www.facebook.com/TriangleBluesSociety
John Dee Holeman is among the most widely celebrated of traditional Piedmont musicians. A native of Orange County, North Carolina, Holeman has performed at the National Folk Festival and Carnegie Hall, and has conducted multiple overseas tours—many of which were sponsored by the U.S. State Department—to such faraway locations as Thailand, Africa, Singapore, and Turkey. Now in his 80s, Holeman continues to perform regularly throughout North Carolina. He is featured in the book Music Makers: Portraits and Songs from the Roots of America. more...
Charley Ward grew up in Raleigh and lived in the parsonage of the First Baptist Church where his father was Pastor. His house was situated of a hill overlooking several businesses of which one called the ‘Cave’ was located. The ‘Cave’ was a stop on what was called the ‘Chitlin Circuit’, a club where touring Black musicians were booked to play. One night he woke to the sounds of an outrageously loud guitar. Charley laid there listening to guitar playing like nothing he had ever heard wondering how it would feel play like that. more...
