Exit I-80 to find Bluesdays with Mark Hummel and Little Charlie

Little Charlie
Little Charlie Baty will be in the Village at Squaw Valley Tuesday, July 9 with Mark Hummel and the Blues Survivors.

The next chapter of Bluesdays is about Mark Hummel & the Blues Survivors featuring Little Charlie Baty.

Harmonica player and author, Hummel recently released an E-book, “Big Road Blues: 12 Bars on I-80,” an inside look into the world of a traveling musician.

Hummel’s career began in the 1970s, and he wrote about working with blues pioneers.

“The definition of folk music is songs that are passed from generation to generation; that’s really what the blues are, to0,” Hummel said.  “There are songs that have been sung for decades and they always change from artist to artist just a little bit. Things have changed so dramatically from the ’70s until now. Today you can practically count he number of pioneers of that era on one hand.”

Hummel also wrote how the music industry has changed.

“A lot of the people who were icons in the ’60s would never have passed on ‘American Idol,’ he said. “To me that’s interesting. Janis Joplin or Mick Jagger would never have made it. Or Bob Dylan. You almost have to look like a model to make it on that show.”

Hummel will be joined at Squaw Valley by another veteran bluesman, Little Charlie Baty, a clean and fast electric guitarist. Little Charlie his best known for his band with Rick Estrin, Little Charlie and the Nightcats.

Bluesdays are free to attend each week at the Village at Squaw Valley from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays.
