SCPC Concert: Hubert Sumlin

This evening's Somerset County Park Commission 2010 Summer Concert Series presentation is American blues guitarist Hubert Sumlin.

From the SCPC website:

Duke Island Park 7pm - 8:30pm
When Hubert Sumlin plays guitar he takes you to his “World of Blues” Feeling -- from despair to ecstasy and from delicate grace to raw power. His style is original and personal. For more than 50 years, he has played with so many blues legends, from James Cotton, Howlin’ Wolf, and Muddy Waters to Keith Richards and Eric Clapton. Hubert Sumlin enjoys playing guitar and proves it with every blues note he burns.

I am not familiar with his work, but you can go to his website and listen to some of his music. For his biography go to Wikipedia.

Over the years many of the SCPC concerts have been learning experiences and I expect this will be another one.

Don't forget your chair, blanket, picnic, and friends and family. Again, these concerts are outdoors, if the weather looks as though it is not going to co-operate check with the SCPC at (908)722-1200 X 351.

Just a note for those who may not be from this area, Duke Island Park (on Old York Road in Bridgewater) is not the same as Duke Farms on Route 206 in Hillsborough.
