Lionel Young is a high energy performer, classically trained violinist, with a bent for the blues attitude. Fans of the driven Young, love his distinctive brand of blues on the electric violin. His show features not only Young originals but interpretations of blues classics by Willie Dixon, Leadbelly, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

His band, the Lionel Young Band (LYB), are winners of numerous awards for best in and around the Colorado region and have won the 2011 International Blues Challenge (IBC) band competition. Add in Lionel's victory at the 2008 IBC in the solo-duo category, and that makes Lionel Young the first double champion in the history of the IBC.

You have an opportunity to see Lionel and the LYB, at The Muddy Waters, 1708 State Street, Bettendorf, IA on Thursday, August 21. The show starts at 7:00 p.m. with a $5 per person cover charge.
