About this Event:
From the Blues Hall of Fame to the historic Chester Meetinghouse comes John Hammond, a legend in the world of acoustic blues guitar. His concert is sponsored by the Collomore Music Series in its 39th season. Hammond has been likened by critics to Robert Johnson, combining powerful guitar and harmonica playing with expressive vocals. Tom Waits describes “John’s sound as so compelling, complete, and soulful it is impossible to imagine improving on it. He’s a great force of nature.” A seven-times Grammy nominee, Hammond was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2011. The concert is likely to be a sellou; don't delay! All ticket-holders are invited to stay for a reception after the concert to meet him. Chester Meetinghouse is located on 4
Liberty Street in Chester (Exit 6 off Rte. 9).
