Ironing Board Sam heads to the high seas!

inNewson October 19, 2012

Ironing Board Sam is heading out on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise next week to play alongside a lineup that includes MMRF Board Members the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Advisory Board Members Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks and more!

This is a busy month for Sam – he’s just back from the Southern Mississippi Roots Festival and the Crescent City Blues & BBQ Festival – speaking of which, did you see this piece in the Times-Picayune? – and then he’s got Capitol Blues Night and the Cruise to finish out October.

Music Maker’s Musical Development Program helps Sam and other artists by booking these gigs, coordinating travel, and making sure all details are taken care of.

Sam is thrilled to be working so much, and as he told the Times-Picayune, “I’m going to be around for a long, long time.” We’re looking forward to see Sam play for a long, long time!

    I was unfamiliar with Ironing board Sam until seeing his show on this cruise. For me it was one of the highlights of a talent packed ship.
