June 25: Charlie Musselwhite at the Windsor Town Green

The last time blues legend Charlie Musselwhite played a free concert on the Windsor Town Green, it was so crowded you’d think he was throwing out free money to the audience. To blues fans, Musselwhite’s signature harmonica tone and phrasing are better than money—they’re among the best in the business. Whether delivered through a green Shure bullet mic and Fender Twin Reverb, Chicago-style, or a simple SM58, Musselwhite is at the top of harp players with a gilded manner to match. Anyone who’s caught his stellar Sunday morning radio show “Charlie’s Room” on 95.9 KRSH-FM, replete with thrilling anecdotes and Musselwhite’s signature drawl, knows that he’s one of the most easygoing and engaging personalities in the North Bay. See what 40 years of playing with the greats means when he appears on Thursday, June 25, at the Windsor Town Green. Bell Road at McClelland Boulevard, Windsor. 6pm. Free. 707.838.5315.Gabe Meline
