Friendly Venues for Hugh Pool

By Ross Boissoneau | Feb. 10, 2024

Brooklyn guitarist/vocalist Hugh Pool is performing three dates locally this week and next. Half of the popular blues duo Mulebone, he’s playing Common Good Bakery in Traverse City Feb. 17, Peninsula Township Library Feb. 19, and at the home of James Walker in Suttons Bay Feb. 20. Unlikely venues? Not for Pool, as he’s performed in all those places previously. “We’ve become friends,” he says of both Walker and Common Good owner Jason Gollan. His set will be divided among his solo songs, Mulebone favorites, and bluegrass music, and will feature “a lot of flatpicking.” The bakery/restaurant performance is a 7pm dinner show, while the 6pm library date will include a bowl of chili. Tickets for the 7pm Feb. 20 show are $20 in advance at purplepass.com/hughpool, $25 at the door.
