Coco Montoya and Tinsley Ellis live in concert
Coco Montoya & Tinsley Ellis play together at the Sheridan Opera House on Mar. 7, 2019. The old adage, “blues is truth,” perfectly describes the searing, contemporary blues-rock of world-renowned guitarist and vocalist Coco Montoya. Taught by the “Master of the Telecaster,” Albert Collins, but with a hard-edged sound and style all his own, Montoya mixes his forceful, melodic guitar playing and passionate vocals with memorable songs, delivering the blues’ hardest truths. Since his debut 30 years ago, Southern blues-rock guitar wizard, vocalist and songwriter Tinsley Ellis has become a bona fide guitar hero. Armed with his signature molten licks, melodic riffs and rousing, intense solos, Ellis is among the blues world’s best-loved, hardest working and most well-travelled statesmen. Tickets are $30 general admission standing room and $45 reserved seats in the balcony. A $4 ticketing fee applies at all sales outlets. Space Between the Shadows will play the After SHOW Party in the SHOW Bar.
