Kent DuChaine, an American Bluesman, is heading to Ventnor Arts Club on Friday 8th March.

DuChaine has listened to, hung out with, opened up for, travelled and played with most of the great Blues men and women his whole adult life. The list is too long to name them all. He’s played most of the major Blues festivals in the U.S.A. and Europe and was on a Grammy nominated album recorded at the prestigious Smithsonian Institute Festival of Folk Life in Washington D.C.

Kent was at 2 of the early Ann Arbor Blues Festivals in the 1970’s and has opened shows for Bukka White, spending time with Mississippi Fred McDowell and hometown Bluesmen, Lazy Bill Lucas and Mojo Buford in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He also hung out with Muddy Waters who he later paid his last respects to at Muddys’ funeral in Chicago.
