Blues

Otis Taylor

When: Dec. 31-Jan. 2 2011

In an ever-more-alienated world, it's comforting to note that you're never alone with a banjo, just as you're never alone with a set of bagpipes, or any other instrument whose sound can be heard within a half-block radius. Which means that while Boulder-based Otis Taylor may stand alone in terms of accomplishment — there aren't all that many bluesmen who employ the distinctive plectrum device to play the tranciest blues this side of Junior Kimbrough — he's definitely no stranger to a devoted following that will likely pack his band's Friday-through-Sunday, all-ages shows at DazzleJazz (930 Lincoln St., Denver, dazzlejazz.com). Times and costs vary each night; check the website for details. — Bill Forman
