About Blues at Bradley featuring Mr. Nick!

Peter ‘Hi-fi’ Ward, his band, and a featured performer TBD – stay tuned!

Concert begins at 2:00PM, and the field opens at 1:00PM.

Join us for blues at The Bradley Estate! These outdoor concerts are curated by Peter ‘Hi-fi’ Ward. The concerts will feature Peter, his bands, and noted guest performers throughout the series.

Guitarist songwriter Peter “Hi-Fi” Ward has been performing blues and swing for 45 years. In the 1980’s, he crisscrossed the U.S. and Canada with the Legendary Blues Band. Its members – Pinetop Perkins on piano, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, Jerry Portnoy on harmonica, and Calvin “Fuzz” Jones on bass – had been the backing band for blues legend Muddy Waters.

In 2010 he produced a CD of western swing music featuring steel guitarist Herb Remington, an original member of Bob Wills & his Texas Playboys. He has appeared on several records of renowned guitarist Ronnie Earl. Peter released two solo CDs — “Blues on My Shoulders” and “Train to Key Biscayne” — for which he wrote more than a dozen original songs. Guests included Earl, Luther Johnson, Sugar Ray Norcia, John Nicholas, and his bassist brother Mudcat Ward.

The event is outdoors and concertgoers provide their own seating. Picnic blankets and comfy folding chairs are encouraged. Guests are expected to fully comply with Town of Canton and Commonwealth COVID-19 guidelines if any are in place on the day of the event.
