Rory Block 

Nightlife Highlights

nh_roryblock-03-sk.jpg
September 28. One of the leading living practitioners and students of authentic Delta and prewar blues guitar, the amazing Rory Block learned directly at the feet of such masters as Skip James, Mississippi Fred McDowell, and the Rev. Gary Davis. A favorite on the festival and coffeehouse circuits since the early 1970s, Block, who this month visits the Rosendale Cafe, has stacked up awards from pretty much every blues foundation under the sun and produced several popular instructional and performance videos for Happy Traum’s Homespun Tapes imprint. (The Lucky Timson/John Wirtz Band plays September 15; Eric Anderson returns October 6.) 8pm. $20. Rosendale. (845) 658-9048; Rosendalecafe.com.
