John Hammond, Charlie Musselwhite 

When: Sat., March 21 2015

Artists aren't born with personal legacies, but John Hammond came close. His father discovered Billie Holiday and signed Bob Dylan, which is a lot to live up to. But the younger Hammond went on to do his part: Both Hendrix and Clapton played in his band during a five-night stint at a Greenwich Village nightclub. The Grammy winner has also released some three dozen albums and been inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame. Meanwhile, his captivating live shows include enough early blues covers and anecdotes to serve as a potted history of the genre. Hammond will share the bill with fellow Hall of Famer Charlie Musselwhite this evening at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com). Tickets are $30.50 and showtime is 8. — Bill Forman
