Bill Lupkin to Perform in Memphis

Music will abound in Memphis on Sunday as the Lil Memphis Blues Society will host a free public concert. The local music boosters announced that Bill Lupkin will be performing at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 21st on the Scotland County courthouse lawn.

Lupkin, a native of Fort Wayne, IN, moved to Chicago in the 1960s and began his career in music. It was in his new surroundings that Lupkin modeled his classic blues style, performing on the harmonica and singing with legends of the Chicago Blues scene such as Muddy Waters, Jimmy Rogers, and Buddy Guy. He also has worked with musician Nick Moss, who has performed locally.

Lupkin released his first CD, Bill Lupkin and the Chicago Blues Coalition -Live at the Hot Spot back in 1999. His second release Bill Lupkin and Friends - Where I Come From made it onto the Living Blues Radio Chart in 2006.

The local concert coincides with the release of the harp players third CD, Bill Lupkin - Hard Pill to Swallow, which was available in stores October 9th.

Bill Lupkin is considered one of the 10 best harmonica players in the world, so we are very fortunate to have him coming to Memphis, said organizer Mike Gelbach. the event is free of charge, so bring your lawn chairs and join us for some Blues.

Local band Cohesion will open for Lupkin.

In case of inclement weather, the concert will be moved to the V.F.W.
