The Dirty Water Lindy and Blues Exchange is here, and Blues Union is co-hosting opening night! Note the venue and schedule changes below.

From 8-9pm Ruth Evelyn and Mike Grosser will be teaching an all-levels, beginner friendly Blues lesson.

General dancing will take place from 9 to midnight.

Plus, there’s live music! It’s the Boston debut of Miss Ida Blue. She’s a bawdy backroom New York City Blues singer who fronts a band that is a smoking red hot and swingin’ blues. The band features some musicians who are regulars in Woody Allen’s band and the Vince Giordano’s Boardwalk Empire band. And some of these players, you may have seen at the Whistle Stop before…New York City’s finest…and we’re not talking about the cops.

This is all taking place at The Crosby Whistle Stop, located at 24 Roland St in Charlestown.

If you’re registered for Dirty Water, this night is included. At the door the price is $15 general, $13 students and seniors.
