Another major score on the music scene is coming to Hannibal, this time it's a blues chart-topper.  Victor Wainwright and The Train will take the spotlight at a concert on Saturday, August 24.

Wainwright and the Train's self-titled album debuted at #1 on the Blues Billboard Chart.  They earned a Grammy nomination this year for Best Contemporary Blues Album.

Wainwright's brand of blues is in high-energy style.  Blues Magazine calls it, "Boogie-woogie barrel-house keyboards and driving pedal-to-the-metal blues delivered with power, drive and enormous quality and talent."

The concert is part of the on-going Bicentennial Celebration in Hannibal.  It's one of 196 events on this year's calendar, which is a pretty amazing feat.

The concert will be at 7:00 p.m., Saturday, August 24 at Hannibal's Tanyard Gardens at 320 S. 3rd St. You can buy tickets at www.visithannibal.com.
