Nick Moss - photo by Greg JohnsonWorld-renowned, 16-time Blues Music Award nominated Nick Moss has honed his craft with a class of blues legends, including luminaries like Buddy Scott, Jimmy Dawkins and Jimmy Rogers, over the last twenty years. Considered one of the premier blues acts out of Chicago, the Nick Moss Band is currently touring in support of his latest release, Time Ain’t Free. Along with Nick’s incendiary guitar work, the band also features the stellar vocals of Mike Ledbetter, as they infuse rock, R&B and soul into their ultra-solid blues and roots foundation.

On Wednesday, June 11th, the band will play at The Birk, 11139 Hwy. 202 in Birkenfeld, Oregon. Admission is a donation to help support the venue.
