Montoya Replaces Stranded Musselwhite at Admiral

Up a few minutes ago at

Bluesman Charlie Musselwhite, stranded in Europe by the continuing misbehavior of Iceland’s Hekla Volcano, won’t get to Bremerton for his scheduled April 23 concert at the Admiral Theatre.
The theater announced Monday morning that Musselwhite would be a no-show, and would be replaced by California blues guitarist Coco Montoya and his band. Show time and ticket prices remain the same.
Montoya is a 10-year veteran of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers prior to his solo career. The left-hander — who plays a guitar strung for a right-handed player — learned his blues style from Albert Collins while he was playing drums in Collins’ band in the mid-1970s.
He released his seventh solo CD, “I Want It All Back,” earlier this year.

Call to Artists

Portion of sales from these newsstands will benefit designated nonprofit organizations through 2010. Selected artists will receive $100 each to offset material expense, and $1,200 prize money will be awarded. Send statement of interest, with contact information, rough sketch of concept and brief description, to Celebrating/News in Art, Kitsap Sun, 545 Fifth St., Bremerton, WA. 98337.
