The Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series will continue Friday, although construction around Ashley Pond is underway. Lightnin’ Malcolm starts at 7 p.m. The stage is set up on the grassy area on the west side where the old municipal building stood.
“Delta Blues goes back to the origins of the blues and Lightnin’ Malcolm one of the future greats, a man that understands, respects and loves the genre,” Organizer Russ Gordon said.
Malcolm has been touring the country since his late teens. He has said “music has been on my mind since six or seven, but it took until my teen years to start getting around on my own, and you know, put it into action. I played mostly solo then, singing, playing guitar and kick and snare drums with my feet as a one man band.”
Lightning Malcolm was born in Mississippi, grew up in Missouri and made it back and lives in the Delta.
Malcolm has played with some of the greatest of the Delta singers. He toured with R.L. Burnside. “He played Los Alamos a few years ago with R.L.’s grandson, Cedric. That was a great fundraiser concert for the series that we had at the Blue Window, a fantastic show,” Gordon said.
