Dubuque’s Carnegie-Stout Brings On The Blues With Music @ Your Library
According to a press release, the Carnegie-Stout Public Library is welcoming Joe and Vicki Price for a Music @ your Library concert event on Friday, March 3rd, in the third-floor auditorium. Doors open at 5:30 pm with the concert beginning at 6.
The event is free and open to the public and adults 21 and older may bring their own wine or beer.
Considered by many as legends of the tri-state area music scene, Joe and Vicki Price bring a sense of excitement and energy to their unique roots-based music in a career that spans three decades.
The couple released a slew of solo CD's on seminal Iowa label Trailer Records, including “25 Below” (Joe, 1996), “Mississippi Summer” (Vicki, 1998), “Request” (Joe, 1999), “Designated Drive” (Joe, 2000) and “Looking for Love” (Vicki, 2005). After Trailer closed up shop, the pair released 2008's “A Brand New Place” and 2009's “Rain or Shine” independently. The latter two albums were both lavished with critical praise, but the pair may have just saved their best work for their most recent album, “Night Owls.” Featuring both Joe and Vicki throughout, “Night Owls” is the Price's music at its fullest, most memorable and most fun.
Joe and Vicki are both members of the Iowa Blues Hall of Fame. Their 2009 album "Rain or Shine" won the Independent Music Award for best Blues CD of the year. Joe is also a member of the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and was a finalist in the International Blues Challenge.
Music @ your library, featuring Joe and Vicki Price, is a First Friday's concert series that features local and regional musicians.
As always, the mission of the Carnegie-Stout Public Library is to improve the quality of life by providing resources for individual enjoyment, enlightenment, and knowledge, and that enhance the literacy of youth. Learn more at www.carnegiestout.org.
