Music Around Town, Seasonal Special Happenings

Travis "Moonchild" Haddix

When: Sun., May 25, 8 p.m. 2014

Many years ago, when I was very young, I met Travis Haddix at some iteration of the Cleveland Blues Festival. I had no idea who he was, but his name stuck with me. He even signed my program. Anyway, years later, as I got more and more into blues, Haddix’s name would crop up in my listening at irregular intervals. Now and then I would delve into Cleveland’s fairly under-the-radar blues history, and — boom — Haddix. What he has always done so well has been his steady merger of classic blues structures with smooth R&B-style singing. He makes the blues accessible to anyone willing to listen and, inevitably, dance. And having been playing guitar since he was 7, the dude can tear it up quite nicely. He once told a music writer, “I am the best that I can be, and since no one else can be me, there’s none better.” Right on. (Sandy)
