Savannah Jazz Festival Blues Night
September 19 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The high energy blues delivered by E.G. Kight, a true lady of the blues, opens our Blues Night. As she celebrates her 25th year as a blues artist, Kight’s long and successful career is more proof that the blues is alive and well, and that all ages relate to the music. “The blues is about capturing a genuine feeling and being real, rather than trying to get a lyric or phrase right,” she says about her gritty-over-pretty style.
Lil Ed and the Blues Imperials
In Chicago, a city overflowing with unrivaled blues talent, world-renowned Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials have been standing tall for over 30 years. The band’s big sound, fueled by Lil’ Ed’s gloriously rollicking slide work and deep blues string bending, along with his rough-edged, soulful vocals, is as real and hard-hitting as Chicago blues gets. The Chicago Sun-Times says, “Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials are the hottest purveyors of bottleneck boogie to come out of Chicago since Hound Dog Taylor.”
