Bluesdays: Mark Hummel’s Golden State/Lone Star Revue
June 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Mark Hummel’s Golden State/Lone Star Revue plays Bluesdays at The Village at Squaw Valley.
The streak continues. Harmonica star Mark Hummel will return to Bluesdays for the seventh-straight year.
For Hummel, the trip to Squaw Valley from his Castro Valley home is like a jaunt to the store. He’s logged nearly 2 million miles in his tour van since his career began in the early 1970s.
Blues purists appreciate Hummel’s straight-ahead blues style. He’s presented Harmonica Blues Blowouts with all star players for decades, has released dozens of albums and in 2012 published a book, “Big Road Blues: 12 Bars On I-80.”
Charlie Musselwhite and Tommy Castro, he said, are perhaps the only other bluesmen who have put in as many miles on the road as himself.
The Golden State /Lone Star Revue is comprised of musicians from California and Texas. Esteemed guitarist Anson Funderburg recently was treated for an injury and his status is unknown for the Bluesdays appearance. Hummel, bassist R.W. Grigsby and the band had four Blues Music Award nominations in 2017.
