Get Away or Come Together with the Blues at Art Museum


            KNOXVILLE, TN—The Knoxville Museum of Art’s Alive After Five concert series presents the swingin’ blues music of Slow Blind Hill on Friday November 28, 2008, from 5:30-8:00 pm.

            Alive After Five offers a wonderful option for those looking for a place to take their family and friends who are visiting for the Thanksgiving Day holidays and also for those who are looking for a place to get away from visiting family and friends. Those who are in need of some exercise to trim off some extra Turkey Day pounds can boogie to the beat and dance to the blues of Slow Blind Hill.

Slow Blind Hill has been playing its unique combination of blues and jazz around Knoxville, Tennessee since 1994 and been a favorite at Knoxville nightclubs, the Museum of Art’s “Alive After Five” concert series, and at late night swing dances at the Laurel Theater and other venues. They have four CDs on their own independent label, Straightnose Records.

Guitarist and lead vocalist Jaimie Cameron adds his signature compositions to their playlist of classic blues and R & B. Rounding out the group are Eddy Roberts on bass and keyboards, Graham Butler on drums, and harmonica player Henry Perry, who took early instruction from the Deford Bailey, the only African American member of the early Grand Ole Opry.
