Veteran & bluesman Garrett brings his bayou blues to BG

The Cla-Zel in downtown Bowling Green will host a blues double-header featuring Josh Garrett and the
Bottom Line and Jimmy Hall Thursday at 7 p.m.
Garrett was born and raised in the bayou of Louisiana and he and his band deliver a distinctly New
Orleans brew that blends blues with jazz reggae, rock, country with some funk and soul swirled in.
"I’m drawn to all things Louisiana, it’s my culture and I try to embrace it," Garrett told the
Gumbo Entertainment Magazine.
His debut album "Changed Man" features songs he composed while deployed with the U.S. Army to
"It was a rough time in my life, and writing these songs made that time more bearable. I wasn’t even
sure I was going to record (these songs). They were just a release for me," he told Gumbo
Hall, former lead vocalist and harmonica player for Wet Willie, has a long and varied background as a
performer, working with Capricorn Records from its early days in the 1970s, according to Richard Skelly
writing for the All Music Guide.
After Wet Willie’s breakup, Hall moved to Nashville to work on a solo project for Epic Records, and he’s
been based there ever since.
Tickets for the show are $8 and $10.
