Rock ‘N’ Blues Concert & Car Show
Blues rock guitar virtuoso Tinsley Ellis will headline the FREE Rock N’ Blues Concert and Car Show on Memorial Weekend on Saturday, May 28, from 4-9 p.m. at Lake Concord Park in Casselberry.
Ellis released 17 albums, including fan favorite “Winning Hand” in 2018. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart and earned a Blues Music Award (BMA) nomination for Album Of The Year. Ellis was simultaneously nominated for a BMA for Blues Rock Artist Of The Year and for a Living Blues Readers Award for Blues Artist Of The Year.
Over the course of his career, Ellis has featured a number of guests on his solo albums. He's recorded with Peter Buck (R.E.M.), guitarist Derek Trucks (who, at age 14, made his recording debut with Tinsley) and keyboardist Chuck Leavell (The Rolling Stones). He in turn has made guest appearances on albums by The Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule, Colonel Bruce Hampton and others.
Opening for Ellis will be the Eddie 9V, a rockin’ bluesman from Atlanta.
Besides the music, there will be more than 150 classic cars, muscle cars, and hot rods for car enthusiasts to enjoy. And there will be a contest for best car. There will be a car art exhibit from 5 - 8 p.m. inside City Hall. The Art House and Sculpture House will also feature exhibits.
