Winter Bluesfest comes to HCA
The HCA, your regional arts center located at 98 Hayden Rowe Street in Hopkinton, is delighted to announce that they will be hosting four amazing musicians for a Winter Bluesfest on January 22nd. This is just one of the many exciting events coming to the HCA this year.
“We’re so pleased to head into 2022 with a full year’s line-up of music, dance, theater, gallery and other special events” says Kelly Grill, Executive Director for the HCA. “Some events will have a ticketed price, while others will be free or ask you to pay what you can. We are working towards the goal of having live entertainment happening every weekend. Keep checking our calendar on the website to see what’s coming up”
The January 22nd festival-style event will feature Chris Fitz, Racky Thomas, Ken Clark and Sonya Rae. Chris Fitz’ music resonates with Woodstock era Baby Boomers all the way to young adults who have never listened to a blues record in their life. His energy and enthusiasm for his profession shines through every performance. The Racky Thomas Band has been a torchbearer for the blues since its formation in 1995, when Racky Thomas collaborated with bassist Todd Carson, guitarist Nick Adams, and drummer Ted Larkin to make a demo cd, and do some gigs around the Boston area. Ken Clark is internationally known as one of the world’s greatest jazz organists. Ken’s technical ability joined with his natural feel for funk and soul makes for a great experience. Sonya Rae is part of the new breed of blues and soul musicians, always searching for new ways to revitalize the form. A triple threat, her striking musical ability is immediately evident through her soaring vocals, scorching guitar work and savvy song-craft. Often joined by guitar phenom (husband) Ryan Taylor, she and her band are quickly becoming one of the most sought after acts on the scene today.
