Three Trails Music Series – Tommy Castro and the Painkillers
July 29 @ 7:00 pm
SATURDAY, JULY 29, 2023
With 16 albums under his belt, including 2022’s A Bluesman Comes To Town, which garnered “Album of the Year” at the Blues Music Awards, Castro and his band put forth everything from horn-fueled soul and R&B to piping hot blues to fiery rock ‘n’ roll. He’s performed all over the world, earning countless fans with his legendary, sweat-drenched, exhilarating live shows. Indeed, the accolades for the band’s live shows are well-established, with Castro being a three-time winner (including 2022) of the coveted B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year Award (considered by many to be the very highest award a blues performer can receive). As Blues Revue states, “Tommy Castro can do no wrong.” Muncie’s own Lovesick Moan will open the show. This concert is sponsored by the Community Foundation of Muncie and Delaware County.
The Muncie Three Trails Music Series is a non-profit partnership between Muncie Downtown Development Partnership, Muncie Arts and Culture Council, and Rick Zeigler, series founder and organizer. The mission of the series is to bring critically acclaimed, national recording artists to perform at Canan Commons, Muncie’s premier outdoor performance venue, located in the heart of Downtown Muncie. A second mission is to promote the many recreational, artistic, and cultural attractions located along, or in close proximity to, Canan Commons and Muncie’s popular “Three Trails” — The White River Greenway, Cardinal Greenway, and Muncie Arts and Culture Trail. We hope attendees will heed our slogan, “Explore the Trails, Enjoy the Music”.
