The Downey Arts Coalition is proud to present ROOTS & BLUES featuring three of the Southland’s leading blues artists who all share a passion for the blues. Join us for this RARE OPPORTUNITY to experience intimate down home electric roots juke joint blues with:

RJ Mischo, recommended internationally over his 30 year career as a master blues harmonica player, guitarist, singer and songwriter. He has released 14 original blues albums and is featured on 25 additional blues albums with Jimmie Vaughn, James Cotton, Kim Wilson, Candye Kane, Rusty Zinn, Steve Freund, Teddy Morgan, John Mayall and others. RJ Mischo is endorsed by Hohner harmonicas.

Nathan James is also one of the most respected and versatile roots and blues artists worldwide. His 20 year career began as the longtime guitarist for our friend and colleague, the legendary James Harman. Beyond his long list of roots and blues albums, Nathan has performed with Kim Wilson, Pinetop Perkins, Blind Boy Arnold, Janiva Magnus, Lazy Lester, Mark Hummel, Gary Primach, Rick Holmstrom, and others. His influences include Tampa Red, BB King, T Bone Walker, Lightnin’ Hopkins, RL Burnside and others. Inspired by these, Nathan’s original music brings a fresh new energy by a younger generation.

TJ Norton is a passionate, and gifted blues harmonica, player, singer and songwriter originally from the UK. Over 30 years he has learned his craft in the tradition of old time blues players, by ear, sitting in with experienced players, studying recordings and making it all his own. His influences include Lightnin’ Hopkins, RL Burnside, UP Wilson, Paul Oscher, and others. Blues masters he has performed with include Bob Margolin, Gary Clarke Jr, Janiva Magness, Jimmie Vaughn, Arthur Adams, and Kirk Eli Fletcher.

“Blues music has exposed me to worlds I wasn’t born into. It has brought me into personal contact with a range of people with different experiences of life. I find people’s stories very interesting, and educational. Blues music is stories told with sound via the voice and/or instruments” - TJ Norton
