    Blues Prophets

    "We'll let the good times roll when the Blues Prophets return for one great night at One Longfellow Square! Lots of us have followed the Prophets for a long time, from the Loft in Portland with James Cotton, to the Showring in Brewer with Muddy Waters, to New Years Eve at the Redbarn in Monroe. But if you're new to blues, these are the guys you want to hear. They play straight-up Chicago blues and they play it better than just about anyone. We might take out extra insurance 'cause they might rock the roof right off the room! It's the return of Maine's own Blues Prophets, don't miss them!" -Al Leighton, Member of the Board

Bluegrass, jazz and Celtic music are all present here, but not necessarily overtly or in a contrived sense.
