with Mark O’Harps

Get down with Blues and Folk artists on September 20 at Humanist Hall! – and bring your friends and festive food to share, healthy and delicious. [But no one will be turned away for lack of food.] Will you miss Tom Mazzolini’s Blues Festival in San Francisco? It’s been cancelled after 30 years running! Plan B (Plan Blues): Come to Humanist Hall in the East Bay, the only solar-powered Blues space in the Bay Area. September 20 is close to the autumnal equinox (on the 22nd) so celebrate the equinox at Humanist Hall this evening dancing in the Hall and enjoying yourselves around the fire in the back yard. Fantastic musicians include Mark O’Harps, a one man band in the palm of his hand; Shelby from New Orleans, a one man band singing and playing guitar, drums, tambourine all at once; and Marco, who played with Jaco Pastorious and will be playing a six-string bass guitar. And many more musical friends will be playing and singing blues and folk this evening.
