MVBS’s Open Jams have become one of the most popular local concert series


Somehow I don’t think this is the way the pioneer blues artists envisioned it when they played on their porches in the Delta.

The Mohawk Valley Blues Society’s (MVBS) Open Jams have become one of the most popular local concert series, presenting the best in blues music for over 15 years until the Coronavirus shutdown brought everything to a screeching halt. Even then, the MVBS regrouped and was able to continue the series by moving it outside. That is, until the good weather made that impossible. So what do you do when these live performances are no longer viable?

You do what everyone else has done — you go online.

On Dec. 10, the Mohawk Valley Blues Society presented the first in its series of virtual blues concerts, featuring Stratcat Willie and the Strays from the Southern Tier. Two weeks later they followed that up with one of CNY’s most popular artists, Colin Aberdeen from the band Los Blancos playing a solo set.
