Albert Cummings

John “Greyhound” Maxwell

Two guitar virtuosos converge for a night of old-school jamming that blues and jazz enthusiasts will long remember. Building his name touring alongside blues legends like B.B King, Johnny Winter and Buddy Guy, musician and singer Albert Cummings  delivers sizzling guitar wizardry on fiery originals and wailing covers alike. Hailed for his electrifying charisma on stage, Cummings will flex his musical muscles alongside fellow guitar savant John Maxwell, a blues artist who gained renown opening for Roy Rogers and performing with greats such as Chris Isaac. A master of acoustic fingerstyle and bottleneck slide guitar, Maxwell’s groundbreaking instrumental compositions have been featured in multiple movies, including the documentary “Shifting Sands” that showed at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. On top of touring, Maxwell taught slide guitar at the prestigious Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival in 2017. Don’t miss this rare evening with two blistering masters of guitar.
