A blues and boogie summit—and a celebration of Bob Seeley's 90th birthday!
Born in Flint and by now a Michigan institution, Mr. B (Mark Braun) is a rare living link to the early days of boogie woogie, having learned directly from legends like Little Brother Montgomery and Blind John Davis. Each spring he brings in blues and jazz singers and players that you may not have heard before for a mini musicians' summit, right here at The Ark! This year's show has a European boogie flavor, featuring special guests Luca Filastro (Rome, Italy) and Philippe LeJeune (Toulouse, France). And legendary Detroit boogie pianist Bob Seeley returns to the bill to celebrate his 90th birthday! Note special 7:30 p.m. start time!
