The Longmont Museum’s virtual summer concert series continues tonight with a performance by the Felonius Smith Trio.
The trio offers up “prewar blues music” and recalls a time when original bluesmen were pioneering a new musical style. Felonius Smith’s slide and snappy finger picking guitar style sends listeners relaxing on a riverbank 80 years ago in southern Mississippi, while harmonica player Steve Sheldon shares his love of old country blues. Scott Johnson rounds out the trio with his skill on the upright bass, sometimes doubling on sousaphone, evoking memories of a New Orleans street band.
Artists at upcoming concerts will be:
July 2 — Clandestine Amigo
July 9 — 101st Army Dixieland Band
