      Belmont & Jones, David Evans

      Dr. David Evans is a world-class player and a first-rate scholar of the blues. He has made a regular stop in Tallahassee for the past several years, playing and sharing stories of his 50+ years experience at such venues as the Bradfordville Blues Club and the Warehouse. This year, he will be performing at Blue Tavern with his country blues pals Belmont & Jones.

      Admission $5 at the door

      "Okay, you might say, you like to hear the acoustic blues, but you are not into it to the point where you are interested in serious reading or studying. You just like to hear some good blues. All good. Dr. Evans is a historian, educator, ethnomusicologist, preservationist and performer, and thatʼs where it gets interesting. He is all that, but when he gets the guitar out and starts to play and sing it becomes clear that even if he was none of the other, he would be one of the finest acoustic blues performers in the USA today. Dr. Evans can play the old blues like the old masters, with a complete mastery of all kinds of blues tunings, picking styles, slide and regional styles and a vast encyclopedic song repertoire. He can play it as well as he can explain it. Not just a brilliant mind, he is a musically brilliant and extraordinary bluesman on his own right. Expectedly, he brings new life into more obscure and esoteric songs, preserving tunes that may have collected dust in the back corner of his record collection." –– The Country Blues
