  • Local music lovers have the chance to see a blues master and support the Killaloe and District Public Library when Grammy Award-winner Duke Robillard comes to Killaloe Thursday, Oct. 11. Robillard has toured and recorded with music legends such as Bob Dylan and Tom Waits and is known for his versatility. Jim Jones of Zapp Productions, who is bringing him to Killaloe, said, “[He is] definitely the most accomplished player I have had up here.” Robillard founded Roomful of Blues in the late 1960s – a band that was good enough to accompany two of its heroes, Big Joe Turner and Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, on record and in live appearances.
