Idaho City-Blues in the Schools

It was a blues road trip. The Boise Blues Society Blues in the Schools loaded up and headed out of town to Idaho City. Teacher Warren Barnes had his Idaho City High students prepared for a little blues.idahocity-web.jpg Ken started off with a little boogie woogie, Richard Soliz added his classic Texas guitar, Pinto’s own bassest Greg handled the back beat with the help of Gary on the congas. add the easy drum style of student Steve and our merry band was in the groove. After a brief history lesson the kids took turns playing, clapping and digging the blues.

Ken lead the Idaho City kids on a musical journey. Moving from traditional blues up to and including a more rock based style. .
