Are you a Chicago blues enthusiast living in Connecticut? You may be interested in a free music event that will highlight Michael Bloomfield and Paul Butterfield’s influences on blues rock. Born in Chicago is a smart agenda featuring a blues book signing, film clip viewing, and a panel discussion experience.
The Chicago blues info-session is scheduled for Saturday, November 16th from 5-7 p.m.. It will be held at the Judy Black Memorial Park and Gardens in Washington, Connecticut.
Larry Milburn happens to be Michael Bloomfield’s cousin. He is a filmmaker who also produces a regular podcast, “Roadie Free Radio“. The podcasts highlight the roadie’s role as the backbone of live music before, during, and after performances. Larry will lead the Chicago blues panel discussion with David Dann, Author and Sandy Warren, Producer.
David Dann has written a book, “Guitar King: Michael Bloomfield’s Life in the Blues” just published by University of Texas Press. The comprehensive biography of the late, great Michael Bloomfield brings to life a dazzling electric-guitar virtuoso who transformed rock ’n’ roll in the 1960s and made a lasting impact on the blues genre.
David will be selling and signing this blues book at the event. Guitar King is a methodical, well researched history publication. Encyclopedic in scope it is a compelling addition to any blues music reader’s bookshelf.

Sandy Warren is the producer of the authoritative blues documentary “Horn from the Heart, The Paul Butterfield Story“. The film tells the complex story of a man many call the greatest harmonica player of all time. I’ve seen this film and recommend it strongly.
