Blues legend coming to Lufkin


LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Legendary blues singer and songwriter Bobby Rush will be making a Lufkin stop as part of his national tour Friday.

Rush will perform at Downtown Cafe, starting at 8 p.m.

According to his website, Rush has been entertaining audiences for 60 years. His last two albums, "Decisions" and "Down in Louisiana" were nominated for Grammy awards.

"He's a prolific songwriter and one of the most vital live performers in the blues, able to execute daredevil splits on stage with the finesse of a young James Brown while singing and playing harmonica and guitar," according to his website.
