Botanical Blues Sunday Winter Concert Series
Take a break from the cold winter weather and join us for Botanical Blues! Botanical Blues is our annual concert series that runs Sundays January through March in the Conservatory. The series features some of the best blues in the Midwest, as well as food and drinks from Trellis Café. It’s a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon fit for the whole family.
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.
