Folsom will soon be able to listen to the sounds of a Blues Harmonica Blowout.

Mark Hummel and his band are joined by an all-star harmonica lineup including Lazy Lester, who previously worked with Slim Harpo and Lightnin’ Slim, Rick Estrin, of Little Charlie & The Nightcats, Grammy-nominee Kenny Neal, Kim Wilson, with The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and guitarists Charlie Baty and Joe Louis Walker. This group is all paying tribute to Jimmy Reed.

“This series was started in 1991 and has grown to become an international event,” said Executive Director Dave Pier. “It sold out briskly last year here at Three Stages and we expect this to be a popular event this year.”

Mark Hummel’s Blues Harmonica Blowout will perform at 8 p.m., Friday, Jan. 11, at Three Stages at Folsom Lake College, 10 College Parkway, Folsom.

Tickets are $19 to $29 with premium seats available for $39.
