Blues-rock spills into WNC

art huskyburnetteBlues guitarist Husky Burnette will be performing at 9:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 25, at the No Name Sports Pub in Sylva and at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Water’n Hole in Waynesville.

Hailing from Chattanooga, Burnette (aka: Rick Saunders) is an accomplished blues musician who has toured extensively around the country, soaking in all the emotion, sorrow and madness he has crossed paths with.

Meanwhile, blues duo Yettysburg will also be playing at 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24, at No Name Sports Pub. Originating in North Augusta, S.C., Yettysburg is a newly formed ensemble featuring guitarist/vocalist Shane Davis and upright bassist John DeSousa.

Adorned with large beards, the group’s motto is, “There’s not too much you can do to stop two Yettys with microphones.”

Both shows at the No Name Sports Pub are free. There will be a $3 cover charge for the Water’n Hole.
