Workshop Alum Micah Kesselring Taking the Blues World By Storm

Micah KesselringPort Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival workshop participant Micah Kesselring is making a name for himself at the 2011 International Blues Challenge taking place in Memphis.

Public Radio Station WKNO has a great profile of Micah, who is 17 years old and already in his third IBC. We encourage you to check it out, and listen to the fierce blues this young artist is offering to the world.

We are particularly gratified that Micah talked about the scholarship he received to attend the Port Townsend gathering.

” ‘I was awarded scholarship to the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues, and I presented that at the band finals. That was a pretty life-changing achievement,’ Kesselring explains. Yes, it was. He met Otis Taylor in Port Townsend, and has since played with Taylor at the prestigious Blues Music Awards in Memphis last year.”
