Old-timey blues at the Scarab Club

Rollie Tussing and Staving Chain perform old-time blues during a free concert at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Scarab Club, 217 Farnsworth (across from the Detroit Institute of Arts), as part of the Detroit Blues Society’s Blues Heritage Series.
"This is a traditional music with a surprisingly modern twist," said DBS vice president R.J. Spangler. "You can expect two guitars, washboards and a tuba, which is not all that unusual for 'jug band' music. The vocals and themes reflect a more modern perspective."
Patrons are advised to arrive by 1:30 p.m. for the best seating. For information, click
