Blues piano concert coming to Michigan Medicine
Pianist and vocalist Mr. B., a.k.a. Mark Lincoln Braun, is a rare link to the first generation of blues and boogie-woogie pianists.
Mr. B learned directly from Little Brother Montgomery, Boogie Woogie Red and Blind John Davis. He has performed coast to coast and throughout Europe, Canada, Mexico and South America.
Percussionist Pete Siers has an international reputation for his intensely physical, yet dynamically sensitive drumming, attention to detail and mastery of many different styles.
He has played Carnegie Hall, has toured Europe several times and is a long-time favorite at many jazz festivals across the U.S.
Together, they will perform a free concert at Michigan Medicine on Thursday.
What: Gifts of Art free concert
When: Noon – 1 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 23
