BLUES BROTHER: Elvin Bishop headlines Fountain Blues Fest.

While its shiftless younger cousins, rock and hip-hop, rely on the impulsive tendencies of youth, blues is a genre that rewards mastery. From B.B. to John Lee, the best bluesmen only improve with age. Case in point: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inductee Elvin Bishop. His 1976 single “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” recently found younger audiences on the first Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack, and he proves he’s still got it on his 2014 LP Can’t Even Do Wrong Right, with its knee-slapping title track. Bishop headlines the Fountain Blues Festival.
