January’s 4th Friday @ the Arts Café on February 4th

The Marlborough Arts Center hosts “Ramblin’ Dan Stevens for its first 4th Friday @ the Arts Café of the year on February 4th, 2022 at 231 North Main Street in Marlborough CT. “Ramblin” Dan Stevens performs an eclectic mix of traditional finger-style blues, popular songs and originals, and has entertained audiences throughout the USA, Germany, UK, Canada, and Virgin Islands. Of special interest is his unique style of “bottleneck” slide playing popularized by the early Mississippi Delta bluesmen including his use of a homemade, three-stringed “Cigar Box Guitar” and one-stringed “Diddly Bow”, both primitive blues instruments. As a finalist in the International Blues Challenge ’08 on Beale Street in Memphis TN, and protégé of the legendary Dave Van Ronk, Dan has been lauded for his ability as a raconteur and for the authenticity of his approach gained by many years on the road as a traveling blues musician.

Admission is $10/person at the door. Doors open at 7 p.m. The show starts at 7:30. Masks are required and chairs will be set up for social distancing. There is ample parking and the Arts Center is fully accessible.
