Concert - Wallace Coleman

Many believe that our true calling reaches out to us like a signal—a sound or a feeling that we follow throughout our lives. Wallace Coleman describes that as a young boy in school: “I was sittin’ in class, and I could hear Howlin’ Wolf just as clear in my head.” The signal was the Blues, and the sound he loved best was the harmonica. Coleman caught the ear of Cleveland’s Blues royalty, Delta Blues guitarist Robert Lockwood Jr., who offered Coleman the gig that became his beloved post for ten years of touring within and outside the United States. His latest album, Live from Sao Paulo to Severance is an international affair—half of the tracks were recorded in Brazil and the other half recorded from Cleveland’s Severance Hall. Coleman would like to think you’ll follow his signal to the Library to hear him play.
