One of the greatest Blues Bands in the World, Jimmy Thackery and The Drivers return to The Columbia River Gorge to play in a beautiful outdoor venue. Join us for a very special benefit concert for “Friends of the Stevenson and North Bonneville Community Libraries”.
Whether Jimmy Thackery headlines a festival or jams for hours in one of numerous blues bars that dot the musical landscape, he'll always unleash an intense volley of rockin-blues guitar guaranteed to leave crowds emotionally spent. His double edged guitar dynamics allow him to fire off tracer missiles, bend a note so it will fit under a limbo bar, run off dive bomber riffs, and find space within the trembling of one stinging note. AI put all my senses on hold and find the zone and follow what-s inside. There's electricity from your mind to your heart to your fingers. You just try and remember to breathe.

Boston Globe put it, "Jimmy Thackery is a four hour performer. That's not how long he plays, but how long one should travel to see him. He is a phenomenal guitarist, one of the best we've seen." Learn more about Jimmy Thackery on his website - http://www.jimmythackery.com
