Glad To Be In Gladstone

Festival season in the metropolitan area makes the sticky heat seem less unbearable. My favorite such event, the Gladstone Summertime Bluesfest, took place last weekend. My review of this Shirley King show is at Patchchord. I mention in the piece that the Gladstone event is a very loose, happy affair. The same is true of Parkville's annual festival, the awkwardly titled Jazz/Blues & Fine Arts River Jam, where I hope to wind up tonight. As with the fine people of Gladstone, Parkvillians tend to be an exceptionally nice lot. And they've booked hot-shot Lousiana slide guitarist Sonny Landreth.
