PotashCorp Electric Blues Stage
Friday, February 27th Tickets $40 – At the door $45.00

Rick Estrin and the Night Cats

Led by vocalist/harmonicist and songwriter, Rick Estrin, the Nightcats’ include jaw-dropping guitarist Chris “Kid” Andersen, singing drummer J. Hansen (who plays standing up) and dynamic multi-instrumentalist Lorenzo Farrell (electric and acoustic bass, organ and piano). Estrin serves up fresh and modern original blues injected with a solid dose of gritty roadhouse rock ‘n’ roll.

Estrin won the 2013 Blues Music Award for Best Instrumentalist-Harmonica, and a 1994 Blues Music Award for Song Of The Year for his composition “My Next Ex-Wife”. He has written songs for other musicians, three of which appear on Grammy-nominated albums — Koko Taylor’s Force Of Nature, Robert Cray’s Shame + A Sin, and John Hammond’s Trouble No More.

Rick Vito

Few musicians in the past few decades can lay claim to the caliber of credits held by singer-guitarist Rick Vito. His stellar slide and lead guitar has enriched the recordings and performances of such Hall of Fame artists as Bob Seger, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, John Mayall, and Roy Orbison. He has appeared on over one hundred recordings, and his haunting slide solo on Seger’s Like A Rock, has been heard by millions as the guitar voice on Chevrolet truck TV commercials over the past decade!

Perhaps best known as a member of legendary supergroup Fleetwood Mac (1987-1991), Rick’s presence brought back a passionate bluesy quality to the band’s music. His original songs and guitar/vocal performances are featured on their recordings Behind the Mask, The Chain, Greatest Hits, The Very Best Of Fleetwood Mac, and the live concert DVD, Tango In The Night.
