FSGW and the Archie Edwards Blues Heritage Foundation jointly present this trio of phenomenal young acoustic blues artists out of Richmond; all were faculty at Augusta Heritage Center's Blues Week in 2017, curated by Phil Wiggins and Joan Fenton. Golden's Mississippi Delta, Chicago, and Virginia Piedmont roots are apparent in his soulful guitar and smooth voice, as is his inventiveness, as he brings his creativity to traditional blues forms. Richmond-native Alli's harmonica style is influenced by Little Walter, Big Walter Hornton, Sonny Boy Williamson II, and Junior Wells; featured at The Richmond Folk Festival for several years, he is also a great songwriter with a powerful voice. Small is also a creative songwriter, and his slide guitar, banjo, and body percussion, as well as his infectious spirit, can't help but lift one's own spirits. $20; members $10.
