Meyer Theater
General Admission: Free

 


Monroe County’s 28th Annual Black History Month Blues Concert brings this year’s Blues Series to a close with another only-in-Monroe Saturday night packed full of blues, roots and soul.  Harmonica wizard and three-time Grammy nominee Billy Branch and the Sons of Blues are primed to bring a big band and an even bigger sound in from Chicago.  Branch, a protégé of Willie Dixon, will pay tribute to the music titan during his show-closing, roof-raising set, marking 25 years since Dixon visited Monroe to deliver “the true facts” to a rapt Lesow Center audience.  Co-headlining The Big Gig! is John Hammond, a Grammy winner whose 50+ years on the road “with a voice like Robert Johnson's and a demeanor that belies his tear-it-up might before an audience…" have earned him enshrinement in the Blues Hall of Fame.  Branch and Hammond will be joined by the concert’s annual host and featured performer, Detroit’s roots music ambassador, Rev. Robert B. Jones, who started the Blues Series in 1988 and has returned each and every year since.

The Big Gig! is an extremely popular event—no tickets are required, but seating is general admission, first-come, first served, until venue capacity is reached.  Doors open at 6 pm.

Monroe County’s 28th Annual Black History Month Blues Series is presented by the Monroe County Library System and Monroe County Community College and made possible by the 2015 Blues Coalition of community co-sponsors: DTE Energy Foundation, Friends of Bedford, Friends of Carleton, Friends of the Dorsch Memorial Branch Library, Friends of Ellis, Friends of Ida, Detroit Blues Society and the Friends and Family of Kevin Rice.  This activity is supported by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts.

For more information on the Black History Month Blues Series, which begins Feb. 3 and runs throughout the month, contact the Monroe County Library System at  (734) 241-5277 or visit us online at www.mymcls.com/blues.

“Cows that type? Hens on strike? Who ever heard of such a thing!” Farmer Brown cries. When his granddaughter comes for a
visit, Farmer Brown declares the farm a “tech-free zone.” He confiscates her laptop because of the shivering cows that use her computer to type messages requesting blankets. “No way,” replies Farmer Brown. “No blankets!” So the cows go on strike and the chickens join them in solidarity. No blankets: no milk, no eggs! Will Farmer Brown give in to the animals’ demands? Will Jenny get her computer back? Find out in a hilariously "mooooo-ving" new musical about negotiation and compromise, based on the Caldecott Honor Book by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin. www.theatreworksusa.org
