The Oolation! singers, a group of unique and powerful young singers from across the country who live in the mountains above the Mono Basin for two intense weeks of singing, percussion, and performance, bring their show to the Mono Basin Scenic Area Visitor Center this Sunday evening (Aug. 5).
It's one of those can't-miss shows, unique to the mountains, and it's free.
The show begins at 7 p.m. on the patio, and organizers say it would be a good idea to bring a seat or arrive early to get one.
This weekendâs Bluesapalooza is so full of top-drawer talent that it is hard to just pull a single thing out of the hat and call it THE highlight.
But concertgoers at Samâs Woodsite on Sunday would not be far off if they gave the nod to Joe Louis Walker.
Walker, now 62, is a journeymanâs journeyman in the blues world, but he shows no sign of slowing down.
Touring in support of his new record, âHellfire,â Walker brings an eclectic mix of musical influences to the stage, from Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones on the rock ânâ roll end of the spectrum to hard-core blues on the other.
âIâm all itchy and scratchy,â Fido said. He sat on his haunches, bent down a bit and scratched behind his ear.
âWow, thatâs a lot of fur that just flew off your neck, Old Boy,â I said. âLemme take a look.â
There wasnât anything that I could spot that was out of the ordinary.
âFido, itâs shedding season, and I can make a lot of jokes out of that.â
âYouâre shed out of luck, for one. â
Fido made a little noise that sounded very much like a chuckle.
âOr,â said I, âYouâre up shed creek without a paddle.â
