A mash-up of Louisiana grit, Austin soul, and low-down Chicago heat, blues harmonica powerhouse Greg Izor is on a roll. His music is grounded in a deeply rooted traditional sound and shaped by the influence of the harmonica masters, as well as Louisiana blues, southern soul, swamp pop, early jazz, and R&B. His playing echoes the records he’s listened to and the greats he has played with over the years. Praised by Living Blues magazine as one of the emerging players on harmonica, Izor’s songwriting and playing are not to be missed. His newest record, Close To Home, shows that he’s changing the way the game is played.
Greg Izor will be blowing his way into town for a show at The Lehrer on Saturday, March 14, with The Kick Boxers, made up of local favorites, Boyd Small on drums, Allen Hunter on bass and returning for a visit from Austin with Izor, Josh Fulero on guitar. Showtime will be 8:30 pm and admission is $10.00. This is a Cascade Blues Association co-sponsored event, so show your membership card at the door for a $1.00 discount on admission. The Lehrer is located at 8775 SW Canyon Lane.
