Blues at the Crossroads at the Guthrie Theater


Blues at the Crossroads
Monday, February 4, 2013, 7:30 PM

After a successful tour with the Robert Johnson Centennial Concerts, BLUES AT THE CROSSROADS returns to celebrate the two legends, Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf. Both musicians vie for the honor of the “father of modern Chicago Blues” and both are considered the key bluesmen inspiring Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, John Mayall, Eric Clapton and others who brought about the 1960’s British blues explosion.Though friends, Muddy & The Wolf were rivals for the top slot, and this spurred on both to top the other and create classics of the genre, including Spoonful, Mannish Boy, Rolling Stone, and Smokestack Lightning. The Fabulous Thunderbirds join Blues At The Crossroads 2 as the core band backing greats James Cotton, Bob Margolin, JJ Grey and Jody Williams.

Tickets range from $36 to $51. I am supposed to bowl that night, but this looks like a great show!

    That was some serious blues! I would have to agree about the harp solo but it did show everyone he had a set of lungs. Lol I broke the rules and snapped a few pics. I'm not sure how they came out but I'll post them later.

    (1) It was good to see James Cotton. (2) They did some covers of Wolf & Muddy, convincing me that Wolf & Muddy were, indeed, great. (3) 6 minutes is too long for a harp solo under almost any conditions.

    I am not able to get out of my league bowling so I will not be there. Looks like an awesome show though :(

    Don't know if I'll make this show, as I have a conflict. But, FYI, if you happen to belong to the Minnesota Blues Society (, you can save $10 on your ticket! Also, Hopkins Center for the Arts gives a $5 discount to MNBS members!
