John Primer at Waterfront Blues Fest

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Woodbine Park, near the lake was the venue of the first Toronto summer music festival.

Grammy Award and Blues Music Award nominee John Primer (born 1945) is one of the last of the traditional Chicago Bluesmen. Originally from Camden, Mississippi. Primer took up residence on the windy city’s West Side, embarking on a career as a sideman for Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, and Magic Slim.

Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate this year. Friday was completly rain out, but Sunday was almost perfect! The attendance was low, considering that this was a free event!

Tomas, I'm glad you liked the Calvary Baptist Church photo. I made it to use as the cover of a church directory. There was a power pole right square on that yellow line and power lines across the top of the picture which I "painted" out. So I was rather proud of it.

Remek portré és kiváló zenész. A You Tube-n szoktam hallgatni ,igazi öröm zene,szebb lesz a világ,amikor játszanak.Szerencsés vagy ,mert Torontó a zene városa is. Jazz,blus és rock nélkül mit ér az élet? LIKE+YS.
