Blues Nation

Blues Nation

From Oklahoma, in the heartland of Indian Country, Blues Nation brings to the stage original songs and blues standards past and present. Founded in 1990 by Tom Machauty-Ware (Kiowa/Comanche), Blues Nation has recently reunited and is once again in demand for concerts and festivals across the Great Plains and beyond. Original band members Tom Ware, Terry Tsotigh (Kiowa), Sonny Klinekole (Kiowa/Comanche/Apache), and Obie Sullivan (Mvskoke Creek) are now joined by Johnny Johnson, sax, and Cecil Gray (Kiowa), guitar. Their collection of original compositions, Blues Nation (Red Hands Music, 2000), received a Native American Music Award (Nammy) nomination as one of the best blues albums of the year.

Blues Nation’s performance is part of the 2007 Indian Summer Showcase. For more information, please visit the Indian Summer Showcase website.
