Cultural Diversity Festival Brings Blues 'n Boogie to Campus

February 21, 2003

K.J. James is one of the most beloved entertainers on the Blues scene today. James grew up in a thriving first-generation blues community in rural South Carolina. For the fatherless boy of 12 who worked construction to support his family, "the blues" was more than a passing interest -- they represented a way of life. Today, James is one of the country's most celebrated bluesmen, having earned four consecutive Campus Entertainer of the Year nominations, seven NACA Regional Showcase appearances and national acclaim for his contribution to the internationally-recognized "Salt City Blues" project. He'll bring his blues and boogie to Penn State Altoona on Friday, Feb. 21, at 10 p.m. in the Slep Student Center. The performance is part of the College's Cultural Diversity Festival and is free and open to the public.
