Jimmy ‘Duck’ Holmes & Mike Munson

May 3, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$12 - $15

Roots, Rock & Deep Blues Festival Presents:
Jimmy ‘Duck’ Holmes & Mike Munson

Friday, May 3rd, 2019
Hook and Ladder Theater & Lounge
Doors 7:30pm | Music 8pm | 21+
Join us for a very special listening-room experience with Mississippi
country blues artist, and last the living practitioner of the Bentonian
sound, Jimmy ‘Duck’ Holmes along with Minnesota’s own rootsy
bluesman Mike Munson.
Jimmy “Duck” Holmes has lived a life steeped in blues. Today he is
the last living practitioner of the celebrated style of Bentonia blues
made famous by Skip James and Jack Owens. Fortunately for fans of
real-deal country blues, Jimmy “Duck” Holmes has emerged as the
keeper of the flame for the important blues style, as he is the last
person taught to play by Henry Stuckey.
Mike Munson’s blues influences include Mississippi Fred McDowell,
Jack Owens, and Jesse Mae Hemphill. From sad and somber slow
tunes to swampy, caterwauling stompers, his music is a master class
in creative blues composition and performance, lyrically compelling,
full of unique turns and twists, yet never losing sight of his art form and
the music’s roots.
