XPNFest Recap: Harmonica maestro James Cotton revvs up the Marina Stage
Mississippi harmonica master James Cotton took to the Marina Stage at the XPoNential Music Festival tonight, showing the crowd what blues is all about. He was backed by a lively three-piece rhythm section that riffed on an introductory number before the 79-year-old Cotton took the stage.
Cotton performed seated and worked his way through a set of songs including “Got My Mojo Workin'” and “Rocket 88.” He wasn’t much for conversation, but his powerful harmonica playing had the audience entranced. Check out a gallery of photos and the setlist, and listen to the performance in its entirety via the WXPN Media Player below.
