Wallace Coleman at Lakewood Library 

When: Sun., Aug. 7 2011
Legendary blues harmonica player Wallace Coleman traveled the world with the late, great Robert Lockwood Jr., and he later made musical waves of his own with his Wallace Coleman Band. But today he is home in Cleveland to give a free performance at the Lakewood Public Library. His is a rare talent, steeped in Chicago-style electric blues and inspired by the likes of Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, and Sonny Boy Williamson. A self-taught musician, he spent decades honing his chops during breaks from work at the former Hough Bakery; yet he never played in public until the age of 51. You can catch him today at 2 p.m. — along with bandmates Rockin' Robin and DC Carnes — in the library's Main Auditorium. Tickets are not required. The Lakewood Public Library is at 15425 Detroit Ave.; call 216-226-8275 or visit lkwdpl.org. — Maile
