Botanical Blues Sunday Winter Concert Series

Dennis Kain:

Dennis “Big Daddy” Kain is a veteran of many years of performing Delta and Country Blues as a soloist and as a featured musician. Dennis has performed in a variety of venues; from Iowa backwoods to deep in the Delta and on the islands of Hawaii. Dennis began his musical journey on the banks of the Des Moines River where he learned how to play finger-style and slide Blues. Dennis has learned to play many Blues standards and has written numerous creative Blues songs of his own. As “Big Daddy” has recently said about his background: I am a “Student of the Blues, learning a way to navigate this world of the blues. Lots of acoustic blues from days when a 78 record on a gramophone got people dancing in a juke joint”. Dennis is a great musician. Don’t miss this Bluesman from the old… and new schools.

Music will begin at 3:00pm

Tickets: Members: FREE, but advance registration is required; Nonmembers (all ages): $10 with advanced registration
