An Evening of Excellent Downhome Blues Was Just What I Needed
I was in the mood for some blues last night – the holidays have been quite stressful this year and I hoped that hearing the blues would lift my spirits. It did that and more!
I first saw Sue Foley perform almost twenty years ago at Antone’s in Austin, Texas, and loved her. I saw her again at a blues festival in New Hampshire about eleven years ago and not since. I had never heard of Peter Karp, but figured since he and Sue have partnered, he had to be good. Johnny D’s is quite possibly my favorite venue in the Boston area and was the perfect place to host this terrific blues band.
