  • There hasn’t been a concert in Los Alamos since Aug. 27 and it’s been too long. However, there will be a Summer Concert fundraiser show Friday at the Blue Window Bistro starring the Juke Joint Duo, Cedric Burnside and Lightnin’ Malcolm.
    They play the music of the Mississippi Delta and electrified hill country blues.
    Before World War II and before such blues superstars like Muddy Waters, Junior Wells, Howlin’ Wolf and John Lee Hooker moved north to Chicago, Detroit and other American northern industrial cities, there was rural southern blues.
