9th Annual Blues in the Natural State



9th Annual “Blues in the Natural State” Festival
PRESENTED BY THE OZARK BLUES SOCIETY OF NORTHWEST ARKANSAS
Featuring The Brick Fields Band, Nathan Aronowitz, 100 Proof, Jeff Chaz, Isayah Warford and many others.

WHEN:    SATURDAY, NOV. 27th starting at  7 PM
WHERE:    GEORGE’S MAJESTIC LOUNGE, DICKSON ST., FAYETTEVILLE AR
TICKETS:    $5 advance / $7 at the door, available at www.georgesmajesticlounge.com


    For the ninth year, the Ozark Blues Society of Northwest Arkansas will present the Blues in the Natural State Festival at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville, Arkansas. This annual festival highlights the extensive talents of the blue society’s Blues Challenge competitors and winners, and also musicians who have recently relocated to Northwest Arkansas. The festival is a fundraiser for this year’s Blues Challenge winners who are sent, expenses paid, by the blues society to compete in the 5-day International Blues Challenge on Beale Street in Memphis early in 2011.
    Music starts at 7pm with Jeff Chaz, a New Orleans bluesman who is relocating to Northwest Arkansas. Jeff and some local NWA blues players are the perfect opener for a night of extraordinary blues performances.       
    Next up is 100 Proof from Bentonville, Arkansas, for a set on the rock edge of blues. The band features James Pilcher on lead guitar and vocals, Chris Burnett on rhythm guitar and vocals, Jerry Farish on bass and vocals, and Terry Lee Wallace (The Divine Nine) on drums. There’s a special treat in store when James picks up his dobro, so watch for that.
    Nathan Aronowitz and Max RPM, from the Northwest Arkansas area, come on stage next, and will feature a set comprised of songs from Nathan’s recently-released CD, “Few More Steps.” This past summer, although still a teenager, Nathan was invited to attend the Pinetop Perkins Master Piano Class in Clarksdale, Mississippi. Nathan made such an eyebrow-raising impression with his professional instructors, that he was invited to play onstage the very next weekend at the Ground Zero Club in Clarksdale. Onstage with Nathan was blues legend Bob Margolis who played with Muddy Waters, and Anne Rabson who played with Saffire Uppity Blues Women. Nathan once again will be featured in the Youth Artist Showcase at the 2011 International Blues Challenge on Beale Street in Memphis.
    Headlining the festival this year is the winner of this year’s Blues Challenge -- The Brick Fields Band from Eureka Springs, Arkansas. This extraordinary band will headline the evening. Rachel Brick Fields, the lead vocalist, is an exceptional talent, and when the band goes to Memphis for the 2011 International Blues Challenge, they are sure to cause a big stir in that huge competition. Their music is healing, energetic and inspirational. Rachel has a truly rare ability to present her original material with no artifice at all. She channels an honest spirit and energy on their original material. These two musicians have dedicated their lives to making music. Other members of the band are Randy Fairbanks (keyboards), Johnny Ray (bass), Casey Terry (sax) and Caleb Bomar (drums).
