The Blues Festival continues inside: when Clarence “The Blues Man” Turner is in the cafe, you know “It’s Blues Time”! Over the years, Clarence developed signature guitar strokes by using items other than the usual “pick”, including cell phones, microphones, harmonicas and everything else in between. As he puts it, “Why use a pick when there are so many other interesting things to use?” Soon thereafter, Clarence started his explosive blues band, which propelled him to become one of the greatest blues men of this century. Clarence was born into blues and you’ll agree that he’s been appropriately sanctioned; Clarence “The Bluesman” Turner. (8:30 to 11:30pm)
