Monroe County’s annual month-long celebration of Black History Month and the blues, “the roots of all American music,” climaxes with another free concert starring an only-in-Monroe lineup of blues and roots music greats. 

The Campbell Brothers light up stages around the world with “the growling, wailing, shouting, singing and swinging voice of the steel guitar, played as you have never heard it played before,” and for The Big Gig! 2016 they’ll be joined by the legendary, Grammy-nominated folk, soul and blues vocalist Maria Muldaur, best known for her 1974 mega-hit “Midnight at the Oasis.” Making his Monroe debut is Davy Knowles, one of the blues world’s most highly acclaimed up-and-coming guitarists, who’s won over fans from Peter Frampton and Joe Satriani to Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo festivalgoers.  Hosting and opening the show will be Detroiter Rev. Robert B. Jones, who began Monroe’s blues tradition in 1988 and has returned each year since.

The Big Gig! is free and open to the public.  No tickets are required, and seating is general admission, first-come, first-served, and limited to theater capacity.  Doors will open at 6:00 pm.

The 2016 Blues Series begins on February 2 with “An Evening with Sugar Blue” at the Ellis Library and continues throughout February.  For more information, visit www.monroe.lib.mi.us/blues or call (734) 241-5277.
