One Longfellow Square in Portland Maine (181 State St. Suite 201) has had a very aggressive electric and acoustic blues roster of late. No one else in Portland is doing a whole lot of this stuff and frankly, they could use the help spreading the word to Society Members.
Recently, they have hosted Albert Cummings, Roomful of Blues, Ronnie Earl & the Broadcasters, Junior Watson, Matt Stubbs (Charlie Musselwhite band), Jorma Kaukonen, John Hammond, Paul Geremia, James Montgomery, Jonny A and many others. They are trying hard to be a great listening room for the blues along with all of the other music we present. They have Duke Robillard, Johnny Childs and The Delta Generators all coming up soon and are working on more for the fall. This is a great room for live music of any kind and blues is no exception. They try to keep the casual atmosphere and fun aspect of a bar (we have a full bar) while making the focus on the music as we are really known as a listening room. Help keep this endevor healthy by taking in some shows and supporting their efforts to help the Blues thrive in the State of Maine. The phone number there is (207) 761-1757
