Walking Tour of Blues Legends 

When: Sun., Oct. 3, 3 p.m. 2010
Price: Free
You can watch the documentaries and tour the blues clubs, but there's nothing like the experience of visiting the gravesites of Chicago's legendary blues musicians. Blues researcher Steve Salter will lead a free walking tour of Restvale, providing some history on artists like Muddy Waters, Magic Sam, Hound Dog Taylor, Jazz Gillum, Walter Horton and Daddy Stovepipe. Receiving special recognition on this tour will be Joe and Charlie McCoy, the guitar and mandolin duo who are the subjects of a tribute concert the same evening. The tour is free, but an RSVP is requested. Please click the link above.
