Local artist hits Blues Festival stage
Timothy James, 17, and his band played the Crossroads Stage at the Waterfront Blues Festival on Saturday, July 6.
The arena where they played was full, but as their notes filled the waterfront area, more and more people came to listen. They could not all fit inside and stood outside the tented area.
On the way out, one man said, "This kid just began his new career. He is amazingly good."
The set provided variety and included originals, music from the 70s that had people singing along, then a Gospel tune and "Summertime."
An attendee, who played cello for the Portland Symphony until she retired last year, was impressed.
