Lloyd "Have Mercy" Jones Quartet
Portland, Oregon roots artist Lloyd "Have Mercy" Jones has recorded six critically acclaimed albums, toured internationally, and racked up dozens of major awards and accolades, including being a 2007 Oregon Hall of Fame winner, a Cascade Blues Association "Lifetime Achievement Award" winner, and the winner of 35 Muddy Awards.
He’s a relentless road dog, hitting festival stages, Delbert’s annual Sandy Beaches Cruises (he’s been a regular on six winter cruises), and clubs all across the land to enthusiastic crowds who can’t get enough of his swampy blues, his backporch picking, his serious-as-anthrax funk, soul, roadhouse two-beats, and old-school rhythm and blues (back before the R&B tag was somehow appropriated for other musical purposes, apparently when we weren’t looking). Yet he may be the most invisible, best-kept roots/blues/Americana secret on the contemporary scene.
with openers: Kinzel & Hyde
Award winning Cascade Blues Association Hall of Fame Inductees and three time winners of the Best Traditional Act, Kinzel and Hyde will take listeners on a tour of blues and roots music that will blow you away! Well known for their humor and storytelling, they perform Delta Blues, Cajun, Gulf Coast, Classic Country, Jazz, Folk, Roots and Swing music.
Regarded as “Guardians of Traditional Blues” they appear on 15 Blues CDs and their music is aired on XM radio station “Bluesville”, NPR “Blues on Stage. The pair is in the “Muddy Awards Hall of Fame” with the Cascade Blues Association, and provided subject matter and soundtracks to important documentary film “Portland Mojo: How Stumptown Got The Blues” which is in national syndication (Criminal Records, dist.).
