Guitarist and bandleader George Bedard has been a seminal figure on the Michigan roots rock scene. This year for his annual “History of American Music” series, George will present a tribute to T-Bone Walker, the great electric blues guitarist and singer. “T-Bone influenced every blues and rock guitarist that came after him, whether they know it or not,” says Bedard. “We will also explore the early soul music of artists like Sam Cooke, Solomon Burke, and Wilson Pickett. I’m pleased to announce that Ann Arbor’s own Al Hill will be joining us on keyboards and vocals.” Joining George and Al are Richard Dishman on drums, Pat Prouty on bass, and special guests Chris Smith on trumpet and Keith Kaminski on saxophone.
