Curtis Salgado and Alan Hager, Ty Curtis, and Lisa Mann will be the featured artists at the 10th Annual Blues Build Benefit Concert at Bennett Vineyards & Wine Company in Cheshire, Oregon. The event, a benefit for Junction City/Harrisburg/Monroe Habitat for Humanity (JCHM Habitat), begins at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 22, 2018 and runs until 7:30 p.m. In addition to the award-winning blues lineup, the event will include a silent auction, a Hawaiian vacation raffle, a wine wall raffle, and Bennett wines, local beers, and food carts.
Curtis Salgado and Alan Hager return to the Blues Build stage with works from their new album, Rough Cut. Featuring Salgado’s soulful voice and world-class harmonica and Hager’s virtuoso guitar work, the album features a mix of original work and classic blues covers and is a worthy follow-up to Salgado’s Blues Music Award winning The Beautiful Lowdown.
Blues powerhouse Lisa Mann brings her 2016 Blues Music Award bass chops to the Blues Build for the first time. Her most recent album, Hard Times Bad Decisions, has been hailed as a celebration of “tough girl blues,” with driving lyrics matched by her extraordinary musicianship.
Ty Curtis has been hailed as a musical “triple threat” by Blues Rock Review for his songwriting, vocals, and “string-shredding” electric guitar work. His most recent album, Blame Me,” has cemented his standing as the next generation of blues artists.
The concert is presented by Bennett Vineyards & Wine Company. Tickets are on sale now and are $30 in advance at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Junction City, the tasting room at Bennett’s and online at BluesBuild.org. For more information call JCHM Habitat at 541-998-9548.
