The Washington Blues Society is having three ticket giveaway contests for March and a fourth for April. Just join the events on Facebook for Lydia Pense & Cold Blood (March 7th), Elvin Bishop (23rd), Davina & The Vagabonds (28th), and Jack Broadbent (April 10th). Note that “going” doesn’t commit you to anything but entering the contest. All of these performances will be at the Jazz Alley, and will be on weeknights. Broadbent has me the most excited out of this group. He’s a British blues/folk artist getting heaps of praise for his slide guitar. Watch him busking in Amsterdam a few years ago. He’s come a long ways since then.
