John Primer & the Real Deal Blues Band

February 10 @ 7:30 pm

John Primer

The Brown County Playhouse in Nashville, Indiana, welcomes blues icons John Primer & The Real Deal Blues Band, joined by openers Jon McDonald & Tom Harold, on Saturday, February 10, 2024, at 7:30 p.m.

As a young man, guitarist, vocalist, and bandleader John Primer learned Chicago blues with the masters. Primer performed regularly with legends such as Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, and was a long-term band leader for Magic Slim & The Teardrops. Primer is one of the few truly-authentic Chicago bluesmen touring and recording today. He was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2023.

Primer’s long list of honors and accolades speak to his experience and reputation for engaging a live audience, including: Two-time Grammy® Award nominee; Blues Artist of the Year — Living Blues critic’s poll award; Traditional Blues Artist of the Year — Blues Music Award; Lifetime Achievement Award, Live Album of the Year, and Traditional Blues Album of the Year — Blues Blast Awards

Guitarist McDonald, like Primer, is an alumni of Magic Slim and The Teardrops, and a performer on Primer’s tribute album to Slim. Harold is an Indianapolis-based harmonica player and vocalist with the Gordon Bonham Blues Band.
