Thanks!
 
As we approach Thanksgiving week, I wish to take a moment to thank ALL the supporters of Ozark Blues Society. Thank you to those who read our newsletter and attend our events, but the BIGGEST thank you goes out to those who support us through membership and donations. The basic adult membership in Ozark Blues Society is only $15 a year, but you would be amazed at what all we do with your membership dollars.  It gives us the funds we need to not only plan and execute awesome events like the "Evening With Bob Margolin" coming up this weekend, but it also helps us to continue our active Blues in the Schools where we offer blues programs and performances at area schools at no cost to the schools. As affiliates of the Blues Foundation in Memphis we seek to stand with them in "Keeping the Blues Alive" for upcoming generations. If you are not a member and want to join us in our outreach (and fun events) please visit www.ozarkbluessociety.org and join! If you wish to donate in a larger amount of would like to become a sponsor for one of our future events, please drop our board president, Bill Baird an EMAIL to discuss opportunities. Once again THANK YOU to ALL of our supporters! Our wish for you is that your Thankgiving week be a wonderful time of reflection.

********
A Boston native born in 1949, Bob Margolin was inspired by Chuck Berry and started playing guitar at age 15 in local clubs. He was hired by Muddy Waters in 1973.

Muddy’s band toured the world and jammed with many great blues and rock musicians, “but the biggest thrill was playing Muddy’s Blues with him.”  Muddy brought Margolin with him to special shows and recordings, when he sometimes didn’t use his whole band, to give him a familiar sound when working with other musicians. In 1975, they recorded Grammy Award-winning “Muddy Waters Woodstock Album”, Muddy’s last for Chess Records, which featured Paul Butterfield, and Levon Helm and Garth Hudson from The Band. In ‘76, Muddy brought Margolin with him to San Francisco to perform at The Band’s “Last Waltz” concert. Martin Scorsese filmed the concert for the classic film. “As it happened, only one camera was operating during our performance, zooming in or out, and since I was standing right next to Muddy, I was in every shot while he sang a powerful ‘Mannish Boy.'”  Margolin also played on the four albums that Muddy recorded for Blue Sky Records, which were produced by Johnny Winter, and with Johnny on his Nothin’ But The Blues album. Three of those albums won Grammy Awards.
 
Margolin left Muddy’s band in 1980 and formed his own band. He released many albums from 1989 through 1993, and in 1996, his "Tribute to Muddy Waters" was nominated for a Grammy. Margolin appeared on the Kennedy Center Tribute to Muddy Waters in 1997, and the DVD of the event was released the next year. Bob has played on several Grammy-winning recordins, won numerous Blues Music Awards from the Blues Foundation, and is a Keeping The Blues Alive Award recipient for journalism. Bob was invited to play on the original "Last Waltz", and was a featured player on the recent "Last Waltz" tours.
 
"My Road" is Bob's latest recording, produced by Grammy-winning producer Michael Freeman. He'll be playing many of his originals from that recording, as well as many others he has played throughout his long career.
