Blues musician John Nemeth to perform in Manchester
MANCHESTER — John Nemeth and his Memphis band, the Blue Dreamers, will perform on Tuesday, Feb. 25, at 7:30 p.m. at the Manchester Community Library in a benefit for the library. Nemeth is an American electric blues and soul harmonicist, singer, and songwriter and the recipient of two Blues Music Awards and several additional Blues Music Award nominations, including four for B.B. King Entertainer of the Year.
Drawing from his strong influences in blues and R&B, as well as contemporary sounds in hip hop and rock & roll, N meth creates music that is personal as well as universal, and owes its origin to no one but John N meth. Elmore Magazine describes him as having, "a high-energy, full-flow take on the blues and a widely admired confidence and power that [takes] the crowd by both storm and surprise." No Depression Magazine calls his music "a mixed bag of original, soul-drenched blues that should have that magnificent voice filling arenas with a sound that's equally at home rattling the floorboards in a backwoods juke joint."
Nemeth has recorded nine solo albums since 2002, having also backed Junior Watson, Anson Funderburgh and Elvin Bishop. He has opened for Robert Cray, Keb' Mo', and Earl Thomas. His last album, "Feelin' Freaky," was released in May 2017 on his own Memphis Grease label, and it generated a firestorm among his devoted fans and the media.
Tickets to this Bob Stannard Productions show are $20 in advance or $25 at the door, and may be purchased at mclvt.org, at the library help desk, or by calling 802-362-2607. For more information about John N meth, visit www.johnnemeth.com. Proceeds benefit the Manchester Community Library.
The Manchester Community Library is located at 138 Cemetery Avenue in Manchester.
