Yes John Nemeth, You Can Go Home Again
"Certain people, I guess, consider me more of a blues singer probably because of my approach to songs. I try to come up with that real powerhouse delivery so people can feel it. That's kind of the way you should do it with blues. All those great blues singers, they didn't pussyfoot around with this stuff."
From his first self-released album with the Jacks, "The Jack of Harps,"in 2002 to his recent "Love Me Tonight," the harmonica player captures fans from both Idaho and California.
Nemeth's career has skyrocketed since leaving Boise, and moving to San Francisco and eventually signing with Blind Pig Records. His collaborative works with Elvin Bishop and his debut on NPR continues to enhance this bluesman's visibility.
JOHN NEMETH , 8 p.m. Friday, March 13, Knitting Factory, 416 S. 9th St., Boise, $12, TicketWeb, $14 at the door.
