    Wepecket Island recording artist Sherman Lee Dillon, the pride of Meadville, Mississippi, headlines at the monthly concert series at Fusion Kitchen, 17-19 School St., Taunton, on March 4, from 6-9 p.m. "Ragtime" Jack Radcliffe will open. Sherman Lee Dillon is a modern authentic voice of Mississippi Blues, having performed with the likes of Willie Dixon, Rufus Thomas, B.B. King, Johnny Winter and Little Milton. He has headlined at blues festivals all across the United States and Canada, and was a finalist in the 2010 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. A consultant to the crew making the classic documentary, “Brother Where Art Thou?” he has appeared on stages throughout North America, and was a finalist in the recent International Blues Challenge in Memphis. His songs all tell stories … and his stories often become songs. A colorful entertainer, he is also a master of slide guitar, banjo and harmonicas. And if called upon, he can play piano, organ, trombone and fiddle as well. He has also been a champion of social justice in his home state, and ran for Governor of Mississippi in 2004 on the Green Party ticket, garnering more than 16,000 votes. “Ragtime” Jack Radcliffe has been performing for more than 45 years. He is a master of traditional country blues and ragtime & stride piano, and a powerful singer/songwriter, as well. He also accompanies himself on the guitar and harmonicas and has lately added the fiddle to his arsenal of musical weapons. A limited number of reservations will be taken for cabaret seating.
