Raucous, rowdy, gentle, sweet, eccentric, quirky, and outright irreverent are all words that fittingly describe Tas Cru’s songs and testify to his reputation as a one of the most unique of bluesmen plying his trade today. Based out of upstate New York, Cru performs in a variety of formats ranging from solo acoustic to a 7 piece-backing band. Tas Cru has appeared at a number of festivals and major blues venues throughout the US and Canada. His music is heard regularly on blues radio worldwide, including Sirius/XM’s BB King’s Bluesville,where he was recently featured as one of four artists selected for its Fall 2016 Concert series. As well, Cru brings his award-winning Blues Education programs and workshops to numerous schools, hospitals and community centers.
Tas Cru will take the Phat Kat Foods Stage in East Park on Friday, July 28, at 9:30 p.m., and Saturday, July 29 at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.
