Blues legends like Robert Cray, Taj Mahal, and Keb’ Mo’ are gracing the Fox’s stage this season. Their performances are part of the rich tapestry of a musical form that has touched every corner of our country. This of course includes Southern Arizona, where a blues scene has been built through the decades by dedicated listeners and talented musicians, both local and touring. Arizona Blues Hall of Famer George Howard has been an integral part of that building process, and boy does he have some stories to share about it all! Come to the Fox Theatre or hop on Zoom to hear some of those stories and to join in an informal chat exploring the Blues in Tucson.
