International blues recording artist!! James Armstrong Presents @ Casey's Pub, April 17, 7-10pm.
March 10, the ICBC hosted Bill Evans' annual tribute to the Legendary Eddie Snow. Bill Evans, Wayne Carter and a number of other local blues heavyweights also worked with Eddie during his time in Springfield. On this night the tables were turned and Bill and Wayne were honored for their contributions to the Illinois Central blues scene and to traditional blues playing. Dan Rivero was the driving force behind bringing the idea to the ICBC board. Another local blues great David Lumsden, a man that has worked extensively with Bill and Wayne, said a few words describing the honorees history and the influence they had on David and all the other local players that look up to these two. Bill and Wayne were both presented with plaques to commemorate the honor. Thank you gentleman!!!
