It's worth making the trip out of town for this afternoon folk-blues fest, held at a former artist's studio on the Shonan coast. Headliner Steve Forbert is here on his first tour of Japan in 33 years, joined by Tokyo-based bluesman (and fellow Mississippi native) Steve Gardner. They'll be sharing a stage with two choice homegrown musicians: Appalachian-style singer Mari Nakamura and mandolin player Taro Inoue. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line 'Time Out Tokyo' to get a ¥1,000 discount on the door (first 10 people only).
Steve Forbert also plays at Club Quattro, Shibuya on April 1
