On August 31, a dream team of blues legends takes the field at Haymarket Park for The Bluesmasters Concert, an extravaganza of jams benefiting the Nebraska Legends Scholarship Program. Hosted by Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac fame, this unprecedented assembly of Rock and Roll Hall of Famers features a rare Nebraska performance by Southern boogie-rock heroes The Allman Brothers Band. Considered one of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time by Rolling Stone and conventions of Cher’s ex-boyfriends, the Allman Brothers maintain their reputation as one of the world’s best jam bands. Ivory-tickling dynamo Gregg Allman leads his collective through hook-laden classics such as “Statesboro Blues” and “Hot ‘Lanta.”
The concert also showcases The Bluesmasters, a supergroup consisting of electric-banjo master Otis Taylor and ambidextrous session musician Eric Gales, a right-handed guitarist who salutes Jimi Hendrix by playing left-handed and refusing to use a salad fork. Howling Chicago bluesman Elvin Bishop, best known for the ‘70s smash hit “Fooled Around and Fell in Love,” plays his ax like a bully shaking down his six-string for change, and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Leon Russell sits behind his signature white mane and aviator shades as he shows off the piano and songwriting chops heard in collaborations with Elton John, Bob Dylan, and The Rolling Stones.
