EUREKA SPRINGS BLUES WEEKEND
7 p.m., The Auditorium (and other locations), Eureka Springs. $15-$199.

Head north, blues aficionados. A solid chunk of the modern blues scene is scheduled Thursday through Sunday at just about every venue in Eureka Springs. John Hammond (above),who's been a force in the genre for nearly half a century and who T-Bone Burnett calls a virtuoso, leads off the festivities, with a performance at 7 p.m. Thursday at The Auditorium with Bob Margolin, the Boston-born blues guitarist famous for backing Muddy Waters in the '70s. Charlie Musselwhite, another white bluesman who came to prominence in the '60s (he partied with Elvis as a teenager, called John Hooker his best friend and played on Tom Waits records, according to the London Times), headlines at 7 p.m. on Friday at The Auditorium, with support by his band The Tablerockers as well as special guests Shawn “Lil Slim” Hold and Kelley Hunt. Saturday, The Auditorium features multiple WC Handy-award winning blues act Magic Slim and the Teardrops and more at 3 p.m. To see the complete lineup and buy advance tickets, visit kcblues.info/ESBlues/.
