A Christmas Cocktail with Mick Kolassa
Time & Location
About the event
Memphis-based guitarist/singer Mick Kolassa, lifelong musician and hardcore blues aficionado, enjoys playing “free style blues” because he love all styles in the genre. His road has taken him from Michigan to Mississippi to Memphis, and the musician was nicknamed “Michissippi Mick.” He also has a talent for finding the blues hidden in songs of other genres, and “bluesifying” them by doing what he calls “uncovers.” While some of my favorite collections of hip holiday music were put out by the Rhino label and featured Christmas classics from the likes of John Lee Hooker, Canned Heat Lightnin’ Hopkins, James Brown and Chuck Berry, Uncle Mick’s Christmas Album is certainly one that will also get your merry mojo working.
