Madcat Midnight Blues Journey
Sunday, June 25 @ 8:15pm Rackham Stage
Madcat Midnight Blues Journey features four veterans of the local and national blues, folk, and jazz scenes. Conducted by harmonica virtuoso, Grammy winner, and festival favorite Peter “Madcat” Ruth, this eclectic electric quartet is fueled by the guitar and steel fireworks of Drew “Cap’n Midnight” Howard and propelled by the mighty rhythm section of bassist Mark Schrock and drummer Michael Shimmin. Bringing improvisational exuberance to standard and obscure blues tunes, folk and jazz melodies, and original music, they have become one of Michigan’s hottest blues roots Americana bands.
