Blues Virtuoso Steve Cheseborough to play at Cannon Beach History Center & Museum

Steve CheseboroughNationally renowned blues artist Steve Cheseborough will entertain listeners at the Cannon Beach History Center on Saturday, September 26th, 2009 from 7:30-9:30 p.m., as part of the Acoustic Folk! Music Series. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $7.00. 

There are people who can play the blues, and people who can talk about the blues. Mississippi blues performer-lecturer Steve Cheseborough does both, masterfully. He brings to life the acoustic country blues of the 1920s and '30s by re-creating the music and recounting the lives, legends and lore of the fascinating men and women who created the blues, and the land they came from.

Cheseborough (pronounced CHEZZ-bro) learns a song off a scratchy old 78 and re-creates it loud and clear, here and now, preserving the spirit and intricacies of the original while making it his own. He sings from the heart, accompanying himself on antique-style guitars that look as beautiful as they sound. He adds touches of harmonica and percussion to his spellbinding and fun one-man act. Steve is also a respected authority on the blues and author-photographer of the acclaimed guidebook Blues Traveling. He speaks and performs in the Starz! TV documentary Last of the Mississippi Jukes, which also features Morgan Freeman and Chris Thomas King, and is host and musical director of Mississippi Public Broadcasting’s nationally distributed “Blues Breaks.”

The Cannon Beach History Center is located at the corner of Spruce and Sunset in Cannon Beach. For information, call (503) 436-9301 or visit www.cbhistory.org/events.php .
