Silent Partners

Day 1

Buick GMC of Beaverton Blues Stage

4:00 PM

Presented by Little Village Foundation

Silent PartnersTony Coleman, drums and vocals; Russell Jackson, bass and vocals; Jonathan Ellison, guitar and vocals — have been friends for a lifetime and can trace their mutual musical lineage to decades in the employ of B.B. King, Bobby Bland, Johnny Taylor, Freddie King, and Charlie Musselwhite (with whom they performed at WBF-1999). Now sadly a pedigree that can no longer be found. A style and grace, an energy and expression, derived from literally tens of thousands of nights on the road. With their Little Village release, Changing Times (due for release this June), the raw energy combined with tried and true experience removes all doubt as to its pedigree.

Silent Partners will be performing on the Hoodoo Moon Kickoff Cruise on Thursday, June 30. Also following their main stage set with the Silent Partners, drummer Tony Coleman and bassist Russell Jackson — a duo with decades of experience backing such blues legends as BB King and Bobby Blue Bland — team up for a presentation on ‘The Rhythm Section’ on Friday, July 1, on the festival’s Crossroads Stage.
