Blues this Saturday

Hillsboro could sure use a shot of the blues, and Don Haupt is the artist who can deliver it. He'll be on stage at Insomnia Coffee Company from 9pm. If you're a blues fan, you may already know Don. If not, this is your chance to get acquainted with some fine work.

His music speaks for itself, but I'll let Don's explanation from his MySpace site give you a clue:

Foot-stompin', guitar smackin', screamin' and hollerin' delta blues. No froofy singer-songwriter tearjerkers thrown in between tracks....just blues. Some folks calls it roots blues, some calls it folk blues, some calls it delta blues, but everybody calls it blues. Done old school like it should be, one man and an acoustic guitar.

Could'na said it better myself. Be there for a great time. Saturday, June 2nd 9pm.

“I merely took the energy it takes to pout and wrote some blues.”
Duke Ellington
