New London Comes Alive for 9-11; Duke Robillard Graces the Stage at the Hygienic

Chris Beard Band, Joe Beard, Bobby Christina, Duke Robillard, Live on September 11, 2021 at Hygienic Art Park in New London, CT

New Englanders remembered September 11th with a wide variety of parades and special events. Westerly, Rhode Island hosted its annual Summer Pops concert in Wilcox Park, there were parades in many communities, and the music menu was very full of events!

In New London, CT, session drummer Bob Christina hosted “Bobby Christina’s Blues Caravan,” with musical legends Joe Beard and Duke Robillard, at the indoor/outdoor Hygienic Art Park on Bank Street.

Here’s Robillard and Beard, with Christina on drums and Tommy Reed (bass). An Eddie Taylor tune called “Train Fare Home.”

I’ve got more with Duke and Joe. Robillard told me he hand-painted the Epiphone guitar he’s playing; it’s pretty fabulous! He actually does commissions for his artwork painted on guitars!

Overall, a great night to experience the essence of blues performed by the greatest musicians around!

Hygienic Art is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to creating an enriching cultural experience in the city of New London Connecticut.
