Guttenberg Gallery and Creativity Center is bringing you more live music this month as their courtyard concert series continues with Iowa blues musicians Joe and Vicki Price. The husband and wife duo make blues music that's both unique and authentic.
The couple released a slew of solo CD's on seminal Iowa label Trailer Records, including:
- “25 Below” (Joe, 1996)
- “Mississippi Summer” (Vicki, 1998)
- “Request” (Joe, 1999)
- “Designated Driver” (Joe, 2000)
After the Trailer label closed up shop, the pair released 2008's “A Brand New Place” and 2009's “Rain or Shine” independently. The latter two albums were both lavished with critical praise, but the pair may have just saved their best work for their most recent album, “Night Owls.” Featuring both Joe and Vicki throughout, “Night Owls” is the Price's music at its fullest, most memorable, and most fun.
As Chard Taylor once said, "Whether you are seeing them for the first time or the 100th, whether it's live or via one of their albums, experiencing Joe and Vicki Price is an experience worth having, worth sharing, and easy to love."
Listen to Joe and Vicki Price in the courtyard at 214 S. River Park Drive in Guttenberg, on Friday. Oct. 21, from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
There will be a $3 cover charge at the gate. Native wines and farm-to-table hors d'oeuvres will be available.
Guttenberg Gallery and Creativity Center is a nonprofit organization that provides high-quality community arts experiences for all ages in a safe, positive environment, including eight continuing years of after-school art programming offered at no cost to schools, families, or the community.
