Gary Erwin has shared with us (and we got a great booklet in the mail about it, too!) an e-listing of Blues at Piccolo (or little) Spoleto. It is often where some of the best events are accessible, when regular Spoleto events are not... hope on the Blues train... Gary's e-mail follows - as always, please check the venue's Web site and be sure to confirm events prior to showtime, especially if you must travel to a show. Always better to be sure than sorry!
