The Blues Foundation will host Johnny Winter this Tuesday, November 26th. There will be an auction and a meet and greet for top-tier ticket holders. “An Intimate Evening with Johnny Winter” will benefit the foundation’s efforts to finish a new museum and home for the Blues Hall of Fame. The building at 421 S. Main was purchased in 2010. Plans are in place for the exhibit and $1.8 million has already been raised toward the goal of $2.5 million. See an artist’s rendering of the space below this slammin’ cool video of guest of honor, Johnny Winter, himself a 1988 Hall of Fame inductee. Winter is a titan of '70s rock for dang sure. But his depth comes from his long collaboration with Muddy Waters, which earned Grammys and financial reward for both of them. Winter is a certified legend. You can hang out with him by going to www.blues.org and buying tickets.
