Jimmy Wayne Garrett – challenging the blues world

262

The Cathouse Lounge has a standing Thursday night performer who is making a name for himself in the Blues world. Jimmy Wayne Garrett won the 2015 Ozark Blues Challenge in the solo/duo category. Writing songs and performing solo since 2007, Garrett formed a group dubbed Jimmy Wayne Garrett & Liberty Bell in 2014 – he was moved to carry on the soulful sound of Mississippi River Delta blues. Confession Blues is the groups debut album – recorded right here in Eureka’s City Auditorium. Currently in contention for 2018’s International Blues Challenge category Best Self-Produced Blues Album, Confession Blues is full of haunting stories and powerful emotions. You can hear Garrett play a solo acoustic blues set at the Cathouse Lounge every Thursday from 7 – 9 p.m., this week. He’ll also play at Brews on Friday at 7 p.m.
