Though more than a month has passed, the Orpheum Performing Arts Center in Tannersville may still echo with some of the great blues music performed at the New York Blues Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday, February 16. The event drew more than 300 blues enthusiasts to see the latest inductees perform.
Michael Packer, president and ambassador of the organization, was enthusiastic about honoring both Kerry Kearney and Big Joe Fitz, as well as the crowd that gathered there to welcome them.
“What a fabulous night! It was a great performance by the artists and what a warm appreciative audience of blues lovers attended!,” Packer said.
