About the Event

Guitarist  Russell Bailey's well earned reputation began with the hard edged  electric blues band, The Bailey Brothers. Over the years, local  audiences have followed his musical progression from blues rocker to  finger picking folk singer playing a National Steel guitar, to  exploratory jazz/blues improviser with the popular party band Crow  Party. A couple years ago Russ formed the current trio with bassist  Franz Pope and drummer Scott Renderer in pursuit of a pure and simple  approach to the original sound and style of foot stompin' blues and  boogie music in the days before rock and roll. Opening the night with Theresa Hartford Born  in Portland, OR and grown in Cornish, ME Theresa Hartford’s musical  style is as diverse as her background. Theresa’s powerful vocal ability  ranges from a low sultry gravel, to a jazzy/rap, to the sweet and  sentimental. Theresa’s soulful story-telling/song-writing has been  largely influenced by her time spent as a wilderness instructor in the  Adirondacks, and the people she has been fortunate enough to know in her  community up north. Topics range from whimsical awkward crushes, to the  woes of abuse, and refusal to settle for less than is deserved. You can  check out Theresa’s music atTheresaHartford.Bandcamp.com
