Delta blues at Blue River Bistro

Mark Schlaefer brings his delta blues to the Blue River Bistro on Friday, April 24. Schlaefer writes personal acoustic blues about his life in the Colorado High Country. "Even though these songs were written above 9,000 feet, they still sound firmly rooted in delta mud," the artist said of his album, "The Sweet Honey Mead," released in 2002. "Dressed in plain spoken words, that sound cuts to the core of the human experience and reveals the indomitability of our souls." The music runs from 5 to 10 p.m., and there's no cover.
