It's our 17th annual FREE concert with a lineup you're going to love. Headliner Thornetta Davis is Detroit's Queen of the Blues, crowned in 2014 by the Detroit Blues Society after the passing of Alberta Adams. Davis' warm, soulful voice moving seamlessly between traditional blues, soul, R&B, and gospel, paired with her boisterous stage presence will have you up on your feet.
Los Texmaniacs travel from San Antonio, TX, bringing their eclectic mix of traditional conjunto Tejano, TexMex, blues, and Western swing. Headed by master bajo sexto player Max Baca and featuring his nephew Josh on the button accordion, these grammy-winning, Smithsonian Folkways recording artists are ambassadors of Texas roots music. And, oh man, are they fun. We have never had anything like Los Texmaniacs at the
GLT Summer Concert before.
Opening the party is locally-based Edward David Anderson's Black Dirt Revival with a rockin' and rollin' bluesy ride that will get your blood pumping. An immensely talented singer/songwriter, Anderson started his musical life as the front man of Backyard Tire Fire. He moved to a solo career, delving into his many influences of blues, rock, folk, and bluegrass to create a completely unique sound. Black Dirt Revival includes some of the area's most talented musicians playing their hearts out. Get there early.
Grounds open at 3:30 PM, with a walk-around beer/wine garden and food vendors. The music starts at 5:00. Artists will have CDs available and are always happy to sign autographs. They'll be under the GLT tent right next to the stage.
This is an outdoor, rain-or-shine event, so be sure to dress for the weather. Bring your own lawn chair and comfortable shoes. You are definitely going to want to dance.
The City of Bloomington continues to support our efforts in any way they can. We so appreciate their trust in GLT and our listeners with a walk-around beer/wine garden. Remember that NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL is allowed. And, please, for their comfort, leave pets at home.
