“Eli Cook – River of Blues: a performance celebrating the story of Blues music in America” (Live) The legendary Son House (1902-1988) was known to say “Blues is a feelin’.” Eli Cook’s music expresses that same raw honesty in a unique blend of contemporary and old-school styles, creating an original sound at the fore-front of modern Blues and Rock. Eli took up the guitar as a teenager in the Blue Ridge foothills of Virginia. Following the tradition of the great blues men, he performed in churches and late-night gospel revivals with only his acoustic and deep baritone voice, while playing every hole-in-the-wall bar that could handle his electric power trio. Blending the influences of John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Fred MacDowell, Bukka White and Lightning Hopkins with the likes of Clutch, Soundgarden, C.O.C, and Rage against the Machine, he forged a fresh sound, alive with the southern blues tradition. Eli’s new album “High-Dollar Gospel” will be released in August 2017. 7:30 p.m. Tickets are required for this free event and can be reserved at http://www.elicook.eventbrite.com beginning on July 19.
