Harmonica ace Mark Hummel and The Blues Survivors will join forces Friday with special guest and guitarist extraordinaire Little Charlie Baty for a night of top-flight blues at The Palms.

The past two decades have seen the emergence of young harmonica-led blues bands. In California, groups that draw their inspiration from the Chicago school but add elements of jump blues and rock ‘n’ roll into the mix have come up with an exciting new style of West Coast blues.

Hummel, leader of The Blues Survivors, has been a major force in shaping and defining this musical genre. He hails from Oakland, the northern capital of California blues.

Hummel is a road warrior, a true blues survivor. Along the way, he has crafted his own trademark harmonica sound — a subtle combination of tone, phrasing and attack combined with a strong sense of swing.

On Friday, Hummel and The Blues Survivors will be joined by Little Charlie Baty for an evening of unforgettable blues served up by some of the true masters of the genre.

The show starts at 8:30 p.m. at The Palms, 13 Main St. in downtown Winters. Tickets are $20, available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland and Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters. Tickets also will be sold at the door, if available.

For more information, call (530) 795-1825 or visit palmsplayhouse.com, markhummel.com, or myspace.com/littlecharliescaravan.
