Tickets have been selling quickly for the upcoming New York Blues Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Concert on Saturday (February 16), and Main Street in Tannersville will certainly be lively when the doors of the Orpheum Performing Arts Center open at 7pm.
Inductees include Kerry Kearney, known for his blues slide guitar skills, and Big Joe Fitz, a fundamental figure in keeping the blues on the air with his radio presence in the region. Guitarist Greg Dayton will kick off the line-up of talented musicians performing during the evening. Members and past honorees Bill Sims, Jr. and Sonny Rock will also play. Professor Louie & the Crowmatix will serve as the house band and will also join up with the Greene Room Show Choir directed by Linda Nicholls.
