Celebrate the 150th anniversary of Juneteenth and the 78th anniversary of Robert Johnson recording at 508 Park with a free, public lunchtime concert featuring acoustic blues musicians Rev. KM Williams and Joel Foy. Williams is a modern version of Old School Texas Country Bluesmen like Lightnin’ Hopkins and Blind Lemon Jefferson. Foy has shared the stage with a variety of blues artists including traditional artists like R&B piano legend Floyd Dixon, blues guitarist Lowell Fulsom, B.B. King’s organist Duke Jethro, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and more.
For several years, Joel Foy oversaw the Robert Johnson Dallas Sessions Guitar Festival.
Foy and Williams both performed for the 75th celebration of the recording sessions, the year after The Stewpot of First Presbyterian Church purchased 508 Park. A part of our vision is to celebrate the music heritage of this remarkably important building. With the completion of the 508 Amphitheater, we are able to celebrate our past and enact our vision for a future in which caring and creativity intersect.
The concert is free, but let us know you are coming!
