Mike Munson at The Jive Mill
TICKETS: $10 in advance (available www.thejivemill.com), $12 at the door
NOTE: We regret that this venue is not wheelchair accessible.
Mike Munson makes his home in Winona, Minnesota, a town sandwiched between the Mississippi River and the bluffs, with train tracks cutting through its middle. Well known for playing outstanding slide guitar blues, the driving rhythms in his songs are reminiscent of the trains that barrel through his neighborhood. He’s a humble fellow who loves making food and playing guitar and singing.
Munson’s blues influences include Fred McDowell, Jack Owens, and Jesse Mae Hemphill – who all hailed from areas of rural Mississippi that Munson visits often. (His newest album, “Rose Hill”, was recorded in Bentonia, MS at the Blue Front Cafe, the oldest juke joint in Mississippi owned by Jimmy “Duck” Holmes.) From sad and somber slow tunes to swampy, caterwauling stompers, his music is a master class in creative blues composition and performance, lyrically compelling, full of unique turns and twists, yet never losing sight of his art form and the music’s roots.
When not making music, Munson tends a large garden, canning gallons of salsa and hot sauce, and cooking meals for anyone who stops over. Word is getting out about Mike Munson.If you know the style, here is a master of the form. If you don’t, come and be amazed.
