Country Blues masters Michael Roach and John Miller will perform a one-night-only concert on Saturday, October 21, 2017, at 7:30pm in the Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden. Don’t miss this opportunity to take in the live sounds of this unique American heritage!
Michael Roach (pictured above; Alan White photo) plays East Coast style blues that dates back to the 1920s and learned directly from such well-known figures as John Jackson, John Cephas, and Jerry Ricks.
John Miller took up country blues guitar after seeing Mississippi John Hurt at the 1963 Philadelphia Folk Festival. He has since become recognized as one of the foremost authorities on country blues guitar.
Wrapping up a Country Blues Intensive for Centrum, Michael and John will take the stage and share with participants and audience members their mastery of country blues stylings. Each will do a solo set then perform together and exemplify some of the duet-playing strategies they taught in class.
