Carey Bell and Jesse Robinson

Scott Barretta writes in today's Clarion Ledger: "The blues world suffered a major loss May 6 with the passing of harmonica great Carey Bell (Harrington), a native of Macon. His death came shortly after the release of a new dual CD and DVD release, Gettin' Up: Live (Delmark), which illustrates how his command of the harmonica and powerful vocals remained undiminished."

Carey Bell's son, Steve, a resident of Kosciusko, will participate in a "harmonica blowout" at blues guitarist Jesse Robinson's annual birthday celebration at Hal & Mal's, which begins at 7 p.m. tonight. Other guests include King Edward, Alphonso Sanders and Rhonda Richmond.
