Get the Blues on February 12

Essie Neal, better known as “Essie the Blues Lady,” will present a free blues concert on Thursday, February 12, 2008 at 7:00 pm in the Fine Arts Auditorium on campus at the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton. The concert, part of the college’s Black History Month tribute, will be open to the public and free of charge.

Neal performs frequently in festivals, schools, and numerous venues across Arkansas. In 2008, Neal was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame, where she stands alongside dozens of influential blues performers. She was recently quoted as saying "I was born into the blues, I was raised on the blues, and I'm a product of the blues."
