Come watch Chris Bergson and Ellis Hooks return to Downtown Barn with their powerful soul-infused blues.

Born in New York City but raised in Somerville, Massachusetts, Chris Bergson returned to Manhattan in 1995. While backing jazz singers Annie Ross, Dena DeRose, Sasha Dobson and Norah Jones, he released Blues for Some Friends of Mine and Wait for Spring on Juniper Records in 1997 and 2000, respectively. In 2002 Bergson was appointed a Jazz Ambassador of the USA by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and he toured Africa with his trio. Evolving to further embrace the blues while also adding pop influences, he followed up with Blues (2003), Another Day (2005) and his triumphant artistic breakthrough, the widely acclaimed Fall Changes (2007) -- MOJO’s #1 Blues Album of 2008 -- that established him as an eloquent, evocative and lyrical songwriter with a sharp urban vision. Recorded at Levon Helm’s Woodstock studio, it led to Bergson being personally invited to perform at the
famed drummer’s Midnight Rambles 
while opening the way for more stateside festivals and subsequent tours of Europe. The Chris Bergson Band's next studio album Imitate the Sun (2011) was named MOJO’s #2 Blues Album of 2011 and their latest CD Live at Jazz Standard (2014) was named MOJO’s #3 Blues Album of 2014.
