By bringing together three generations of the finest musicians in Blues today, Blues On The North Shore continues its concerts aimed at celebrating Black Music Month.

This evening BOTNS offers an exciting musical journey as we experience the music of the rural south as it evolves into the urban electric sounds that have influenced music around the world.

It is this sound that has given Chicago an international reputation as: The "Home of the Blues".

On a special and personal note... we'd like to wish Honeyboy a heart felt "Happy Birthday" as he turns 95 on this date.
