The Eastport Arts Center will present Scott Cleveland’s unique concert experience, “The Blues Spectrum,” on Saturday, July 13 at 7 pm. Cleveland, who’s dubbed his program a ‘docu-concert’ will speak, sing and play his way through the Blues and many of its musical offspring, from 18th century field hollers, to acoustic Delta Blues, Chicago Blues, Rhythm and Blues, Blues ballads by artists like Tom Waits and Elvis Costello, to lush, astringent jazz Blues, with a few originals mixed in.
