Skiing and Chris Cain on Fourth of July at Squaw Valley
The chairlifts are in operation for the Fourth of July when Chris Cain returns to Bluesdays in The Village at Squaw Valley. San Jose’s Cain has played here more than any other artist. He attended a B.B. King concert when he was just 3 years old and it must have made quite an impression. You can hear King’s influence in everything he plays.
“I think he should be known way more than he is now,” said fellow bluesman Dennis Jones. “He should be a household name just like Albert (King) and the rest of those guys. He’s magic, a true blues player.”
Cain studied jazz, which he taught at San Jose City College, and was a professional player before turning 18. His recording career began in 1987. He also plays piano, bass, clarinet and saxophone.
The Funitel, Shirley Lake, Big Blues and Gold Coast lifts will be running for skiing and the Tram for sightseeing.
Starting on Saturday, the lifts will run weekly from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
