Veteran blues guitarist Walter Parks will perform next month as part of Mercantile Home's Distinctive Music Series.
Parks, guitarist for Woodstock legend Richie Havens and leader of the southern swamp-blues outfit Swamp Cabbage, will play Nov. 9 at 8 p.m.
"Inspired by the swampy gospel blues that wails from storefront churches and roadhouses in and around the southeast Georgia low country, Parks’ music is full of boot-stomping, guitar-strumming tunes that explore matters of the soul and spirit, built upon a foundation of jazz and folk," Mercantile Home said in a news release.
Past performers for the Distinctive Music Series have included Judy Collins, Kishi Bashi, Sonya Kitchell and the Brooklyn Strings, Kenny White, Decembersongs, and Hedda Lettuce.
Tickets are $18—seating is limited— and are available at Mercantile Home and online at www.mercantilehome.com.
