Blues at the Crossroads returns to Sangamon Auditorium, UIS, Feb. 2, to honor two of the greatest musicians in blues music, Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf. Both considered father of modern Chicago blues, the pair, who were also good friends, were key influences in the careers of Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, John Mayall and Eric Clapton. The Fabulous Thunderbirds will be the core band backing five great bluesmen, James Cotton and Bob Margolin (who both played in Muddy Waters’ band), JJ Grey, Jody Williams (pictured) and Kim Wilson. The show is part of the Visiting Artists Series at University of Illinois Springfield. Tickets can be purchased by phone, online or two hours before performance time.
