2016 Gilmore Festival: Mr. B Trio

Blues and boogie-woogie pianist Mark Lincoln Braun, known as Mr. B, has become one of the premier purveyors of a vanishing art. Having learned his craft firsthand from the early blues and boogie legends like Little Brother Montgomery, Boogie-Woogie Red, and Blind John Davis, Mr. B appeared at the 2002 Festival, and we are delighted to have him back. Mr. B performs with Paul Keller on bass and Pete Siers on drums.
