ARLINGTON - This Saturday, April 6, master blues singer and song stylist Chris Kleeman will take the stage at The West Mountain Inn in Arlington for the second show in their Spring Local Music Series.

One of Vermont's best-kept blues secrets, Kleeman will perform in the Inn's intimate living room and tavern setting. From his smoky vocals and superlative slide guitar on a 1933 National Duolian, deft rag-time guitar and vocal trombone and scat, Kleeman's performances are spellbinding. His evocative original 12-string guitar instrumentals bring a unique and powerful element to his shows.

Kleeman was a featured performer at the Montreux Jazz festival in 2002, along with Bob Stannard. He has also shared the stage and performed with great Blues legends of our time, including B.B. King, Buddy Guy, John Hammond, Susan Tedeschi, Guy Davis and many others.

Saturday night's performance starts at 7pm and is open to the public. The cover charge is $10 and a farm to table tavern menu and drinks will be available.

The West Mountain Inn is located at 144 River Road in Arlington.
