He earned a bachelor of music degree from Howard University, where he was a member of the Howard University Choir and Jazz Vocal Ensemble. In addition to being a vocalist, guitarist, keyboardist, and composer, Daryl Davis is a celebrated lecturer, actor, and author of Klan-Destine Relationships: A Black Man’s Odyssey in the Ku Klux Klan, the story of his quixotic journey into the heart of the KKK. As a performer, Davis has worked with Elvis Presley’s Jordanaires, The Coasters, B.B. King, Chuck Berry, Percy Sledge, and many others. He was the featured pianist on Cephas & Wiggins’ 1992 Grammy Award winning album, Flip Flop and Fly. In 1985, boogie-woogie pioneer Pinetop Perkins selected Daryl to succeed him in the piano and vocal slot of the Muddy Waters Legendary Blues Band. Daryl’s album, American Roots, received the 2005 Washington Area Music Association Award for Best Roots Music Artist, and the 2006 and 2008 WAMA award for Best Blues Instrumentalist. He is the recipient of the Dizzy Gillespie Baha’i Award for Racial Harmony Through the Arts, and the highly prestigious American Ethical Union’s Elliott-Black Award.

AHMAD BAABAHAR – GUITAR Born in New York City and raised internationally living in Canada, England, Hawaii and Seattle, Ahmad was exposed to a wide range of musical influences in his family home. As a child, Ahmad was privileged to watch and meet many of the Blues greats introduced to him through his mother’s love of live music. He found creative magic with an acoustic guitar and his own voice and expressing his varied life experiences through words and music. He is a Port Townsend favorite and appears regularly at Sirens Pub, the Uptown Pub, Ajax Café and the Upstage Restaurant as well as various Seattle venues including the Folklife Festival.

BRUCE “SUNPIE” BARNES - ACCORDION Bruce “Sunpie” Barnes is a veteran musician, park ranger, actor, former high school biology teacher, and former NFL player with the Kansas City Chiefs. His career has taken him far and wide, travelling to more than 35 countries playing his own style of blues, zydeco and Afro-Louisiana music incorporating Caribbean and African influenced rhythms and melodies. He is a multi-instrumentalist playing piano, percussion, and harmonica - and he learned to play accordion from some of the best, including Fernest Arceneaux, John Delafose, and Clayton Sampy. With his musical group Sunpie and the Louisiana Sunspots, he has played festivals and concerts across New Orleans and the US, as well as internationally, and they have recorded five critically acclaimed CDs. TERRY BEAN – HARMONICA Terry “Harmonica” Bean began playing guitar and harmonica as a child, and eventually began performing at family gatherings and house parties. Terry decided to get serious about the blues in 1988 after attending the Delta Blues Festival in Greenville. He went there to see Robert Junior Lockwood, who played with Terry’s idol, harmonica legend Little Walter, but inadvertently fell in with the Greenville blues scene. Terry has maintained a busy performance schedule as both a solo artist and with the Terry Harmonica Bean Blues Band, performing at festivals across Mississippi as well as in Alabama, Arkansas, Missouri, and Tennessee, and at clubs across the region. ROBERT BELFOUR – GUITAR Robert Belfour was born in the hill country in the northern part of Mississippi. The region has a distinctly different culture than the more famous Mississippi Delta, and the blues from the region is strong and unique, mesmerizing and hypnotic. Like most of the other accomplished performers from the area, Robert was submerged in the area’s rich musical heritage. Robert’s first memory is that of his father playing a resonator guitar in a style similar to that of Charlie Patton’s. In the 1980s, Robert began playing on Beale Street performing at the Rum Boogie, the Hard Rock Café, and B.B. King’s Club. In 1994 he had eight songs featured on the compilation album The Spirit Lives On, Deep South Country Blues and Spirituals in the 1990s. This led him to Fat Possum Records and his first album, What’s Wrong With You, which was released in 2000.

Influenced by legendary bluesman Willie Dixon, Robert developed an educational program called “Blues For Schools,” which has taken him into classrooms all over the country. He eventually reshaped the program into “American Roots Music In Education” (ARMIE), a program that could encompass a wider variety of music including spirituals, gospel and folk songs. Recently, Rev. Jones presented his ARMIE program at venues in the United States, Canada, England and Germany.

Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival JENNY PETERSON – PIANO A native of Port Townsend, Jenny Peterson began her blues career at the age of 7 hanging around on the porch at Building 204 with the notable blues musicians who were attending the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival. Jenny grew up studying classical piano and playing at her local church, but has always been drawn to the blues. Over the years, she has been inspired by various Centrum artists including Daryl Davis, Ann Rabson, Erwin Helfer, and Arthur Migliazza. For the last four years she has been attending St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, where she is a member of the jazz band, accompanies dance classes and continues to play the blues. ANN RABSON – PIANO Ann Rabson has been playing and singing the blues professionally since 1962. She performs solo and with various bands, including ad hoc ensembles known as The Annimators. For 25 years she was a member of Saffire—The Uppity Blues Women. Ann has toured Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, the Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Holland, Hong Kong, Italy, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, and Switzerland, performing solo, with Saffire, and with piano legend Erwin Helfer. In 2011 Ann received her ninth nomination for a Blues Music Award (formerly W.C. Handy Award) as Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year. In 2008 she was nominated for Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year; her first solo album, Music Makin’ Mama, was nominated for Album of the Year in both the Traditional Blues and Acoustic Blues categories; and her composition, “Elevator Man” was nominated for Song of the Year. LAUREN SHEEHAN, GUITAR Lauren grew up in New England where she studied classical guitar as a child and became infected by the spirit of fiddle music at contra dances in western Massachusetts. She wrote her thesis on American folk music at Reed College before spending a number of years playing in small ensembles while founding, administering, and teaching in independent schools. During this time, she toured in New England, Ireland and the Pacific Northwest. She retired from teaching in 2003 and dedicated herself to full-time performing and recording. One look at her website shows the variety of club, concert, and festival dates she performs, in solo, duo, and trio configurations and with the old blues band Eagle Ridin’ Papas. Lauren’s passion for learning directly from other Wednesday, July 25, 2012

musicians has led her into the homes and front porches of the musical legends who passed on much of the material and stylistic qualities she presents today. Her endearing performances spring from time spent with such legendary performers as John Cephas, Ginny Hawker, Etta Baker, Carl Rutherford and Howard Armstrong. She enjoys recalling the twinkle in John Jackson’s eye when the two of them sat alone together in an old school house and he taught her “Come On Over to My House”. TIM SPARKS – GUITAR Tim Sparks taught himself to play the music he heard around him: traditional country blues and the gospel his grandmother played on piano in a small church in the Blue Ridge Mountains. At 14, Tim was nominated for a scholarship at the prestigious North Carolina School of the Arts. There he studied the classics with Segovia protégé Jesus Silva while continuing to play all kinds of music, increasingly turning to classic jazz for inspiration. He adapted compositions by Jelly Roll Morton, Scott Joplin, and Fats Waller to the guitar, frequently reducing piano arrangements to their essence. In recent years, Sparks’ musical focus has come full circle, returning to the country blues and classic jazz that served as a springboard for his worldwide guitar explorations. ELIJAH WALD - GUITAR / BLUES HISTORY Elijah Wald spent many years hitchhiking and performing all over North America and Europe, as well as much of Asia and Africa, including several months studying with the Congolese guitar masters Jean-Bosco Mwenda and Edouard Masengo in eastern Zaire. In the early 1980s, Elijah began writing for The Boston Globe, and was in charge of the newspaper’s “world music” coverage for most of the 1990s, as well as contributing articles to various other newspapers and magazines. His books include Escaping the Delta: Robert Johnson and the Invention of the Blues, Josh White: Society Blues, Global Minstrels: Voices of World Music, Dave Van Ronk’s memoir The Mayor of MacDougal Street, and River of Song: Music Along the Mississippi.

LIGHTNIN’ WELLS – GUITAR/UKELELE North Carolina musician Lightnin’ Wells breathes new life into the vintage tunes of the 1920s and depression-era America. Lightnin’ produced the first commercial recordings of the North Carolina blues veterans Big Boy Henry, Algia Mae Hinton and George Higgs. He has traveled and performed extensively with these musicians and has documented their backgrounds and musical histories for future generations. Lightnin’ is a life-long student and devotee of the pioneering performers in the Piedmont blues tradition which once thrived in the Carolinas, including such artists as Blind Boy Fuller, Rev. Gary Davis and Elizabeth Cotton. Most recent CD releases include Shake ‘Em on Down and Jump Little Children: Old Songs for Young Folks which was designed with the younger listener in mind. PHIL WIGGINS – HARMONICA During the early years of his development as a musician, Washington, D.C. native Phil Wiggins was constantly playing with and learning from some of the most notable acoustic blues musicians in the Washington area, including Flora Molten, Wilber “Chief” Ellis, John Jackson, John Cephas, and others. He was mentored as well by many other musicians who frequented the D.C. area, including Sunnyland Slim, Henry Townsend, John Dee Holeman, Algia Mae Hinton, Howard Armstrong, Etta Baker, and others. In 1976 he met and joined with Chief Ellis on piano, John Cephas on guitar, and James Bellamy on bass to form Ellis and the Barrelhouse Rockers. Not long after, Phil and John Cephas formed the duo Cephas and Wiggins. As ambassadors of the Piedmont blues, Cephas and Wiggins took their music all over America and the world, including Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House, Royal Albert Hall, and the White House. Phil was the Artistic Director of the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Festival 2004-2009.

Centrum welcomes

Los Lobos Sunday, August 12, 7:30 PM McCurdy Pavilion Louie Perez - Drums, Guitars, Percussion, Vocals Steve Berlin - Saxophone, Percussion, Flute, Midsax, Harmonica, Melodica Cesar Rosas - Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin Conrad Lozano - Bass, Guitarron, Vocals David Hidalgo - Vocals, Guitar, Accordion, Percussion, Bass, Keyboards, Melodica, Drums, Violin, Banjo Cougar Estrada - Drums/Percussion Since 1974, East L.A.’s Los Lobos have been exploring the artistic and commercial possibilities of American biculturalism, moving back and forth between their Chicano roots and their love of American rock & roll. Although the band first gained fame as part of the early-Eighties roots-rock revival, they didn’t so much strip music down as mix it up, playing norteño, blues, country, Tex-Mex, ballads, folk and rock. They have been guests on albums by Ry Cooder, Elvis Costello, Fabulous Thunderbirds, Roomful of Blues, and Paul Simon, and their music has been featured in films such as La Bamba and Desperado. Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano, David Hidalgo, and Louie Perez, four friends from East L.A.’s Garfield High School, formed Los Lobos (Spanish for “the Wolves”) to play weddings and bars in their neighborhood. Although they had previously played in straightforward American rock bands, together they decided to experiment with acoustic folk instruments and explore their Mexican heritage, playing norteño and conjunto music on instruments including the guitarron and bajo sexto. They got their first full-time gig in 1978, playing at a Mexican restaurant in Orange County. That year they also released their debut album, Just Another Band From East L.A. The Blasters became fans and urged Slash Record to sign Los Lobos. Their second LP, ...And a Time to Dance (1983), was produced by T-Bone Burnett and Blasters saxophonist Steve Berlin. Its divergent collection of dance songs included the 70-year-old Mexican Revolution song “Anselma,” which won a Grammy in 1983 for Best MexicanAmerican Performance. Berlin joined Los Lobos for How Will the Wolf Survive? a much-praised album whose title track later became a country hit for Waylon Jennings. The album marked the first time Los Lobos entered the Billboard Top 200. They followed with By the Light of the Moon, an album that featured several socially and politically conscious songs about life in the barrio. In 1987 Los Lobos recorded several Ritchie Valens songs for the soundtrack to the Valens biopic La Bamba. The soundtrack went double-platinum, and the success of the title track and Come On, Let’s Go suddenly lifted Los Lobos out of their bar-band, critics’ fave status. They took a noncommercial detour with La Pistola y el Corazón featuring the traditional Mexican music they had played in the late Seventies. The public largely overlooked the album, though it earned the band their second Grammy. On The Neighborhood they returned to more rocking material, working with John

Hiatt, The Band’s Levon Helm, and drummer Jim Keltner. The album’s title paid homage to the deep connections the band still felt with East L.A. In 1991, Hidalgo and Perez wrote songs with the Band for that group’s reunion album. The material inspired Kiko, an evocative, avant-Latin-pop album produced by Mitchell Froom. In 1993 Slash released a 20-year-anniversary retrospective of Los Lobos songs. The two-disc set, Just Another Band From East L.A.: A Collection includes material from the band’s debut LP, rare B-sides, live tracks, and the band’s hit singles. Latin Playboys (1994), a self-titled album by an ad hoc group consisting of Hidalgo, Perez, Froom, and Tchad Blake, was a cross between the music of Los Lobos and Captain Beefheart. The muscular funk rock of Los Lobos’ next album, Colossal Head split the difference between Kiko and Latin Playboys. In 1998 Rosas and Hidalgo released Los Super Seven as part of a loose-knit Latin supergroup of the same name that included Freddy Fender, Joe Ely, and accordion ace Flaco Jiménez, among others. In 2001, they released Canto, which included vocalists Raul Malo of the Mavericks and Caetano Veloso. In 1999 Rosas released Soul Disguise, a gritty, R&B-inflected solo record. For his part, Hidalgo teamed up with ex–Canned Heat guitarist Mike Halby as Houndog for a self-titled blues album. After this spate of side projects, Los Lobos returned to the studio to record This Time, the final installment in a trilogy of heady, groove-rich albums (alongside Kiko and Colossal Head) exploring Mexican folklore and mysticism. In 2001 they were honored with the Billboard Century Award. For their next record, the back-to-basics Good Morning Aztlán, they brought in British producer John Leckie, who had worked with Public Image Ltd. and Radiohead. 2004’s The Ride featured an all-star cast of guest artists including Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, Mavis Staples, and Richard Thompson. In 2009, Rhino Records released the greatest hits collection, Wolf Tracks: The Best of Los Lobos, a concise 20-song retrospective collection, which was followed by The Town and the City. 2009 saw the band at its softest side on the children’s record Los Lobos Goes Disney, a collection of reworked Disney classics. Los Lobos’ newest recording is Tin Can Trust, which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. Media sponsor
