Friday Night Live

Time: 6:00pm

Price: FREE

Where: Cloverdale Plaza

Address: Downtown Cloverdale

September 1 - Charlie Musselwhite Genre: Blues Winery Sponsor: Rodney Strong Vineyards Concert Sponsor: Sonoma Clean Power Fifty years of nonstop touring, performing and recording have reaped huge rewards. Charlie Musselwhite is living proof that great music only gets better with age. He may be the only musician to get a huge ovation just for opening his briefcase, because fans know that is where he keeps his harmonica and they are about the hear one of the true masters work his magic. Musselwhite cut his (musical) teeth alongside muddy Waters, Howling Wolf and everyone on the South side of Chicago in the early 1960’s. Since then, this bluesman of the highest order has taken his harmonica from Chicago clubs to places it’s never been before, both musically and geographically. Shortly before winning the 2014 GRAMMY for Best Blues Album for their collaboration Get Up!, he and Ben Harper played at the White House for President Obama and the First Lady, in a salute to Memphis soul. Musselwhite’s current band ranks with the best he’s ever had. It features drummer June Core, bassist Steve Froberg, and guitarist Matt Stubbs. As for their bandleader, at 71 Musselwhite is truly at the top of his game, as evidenced by I Ain’t Lyin’, Henrietta Records’ follow-up to the GRAMMY-nominated Juke Joint Chapel. This year he won the Blues Music Awards’ Best Instrumentalist – Harmonica, for a staggering 25th time, of his 29 wins overall and 2010 induction into the Blues Hall of Fame.
