Join The Filson Historical Society for an evening of blues hits from the 1950s and 60s. A longstanding tradition, Blues Night will feature the music of Tyrone Cotton.

Blues plays a large role in Louisville’s music history, with its roots dating back to the early 20th century. Several legendary blues artists called the River City home, including Sylvester Weaver, who recorded the first blues guitar record in 1923. Other local blues legends include Bill Gaither, Sarah Martin, Helen Humes and Edmonia Henderson. Wine, beer, and light refreshments will be served.

Singer-songwriter Tyrone Cotton, with his unique voice and vivid songs, brings a soulful sound that’s refreshingly honest and real. His music draws upon many influences: including soul, blues, folk, and rock. He has opened for Grammy winner Leon Russell, the Blind Boys of Alabama, and the great Johnny Winter. He is currently active in the Louisville music scene and occasionally does some touring.
