A bit of everything
Two nationally-known blues artists, Luther Allison and Big Walter Horton,
will appear at 8 tonight in the Nebraska Union Centennial Room.
Downbeat called Horton's playing "funky, lowdown, sensitive, tasteful
and what the blues should be." Horton is probably one of the last and the
best of a rare breed-blues harmonica players.
In his 40-year career, Horton has achieved only sporadic commercial
success and is known more for his influence on other blues harmonica players
such as Carey Bell and Little Walter Jacobs.
Horton's fans often have been other musicians because his complex
playing style requires attentive listening. He offers no gimmicks in his
Horton has recorded the backup for many well-known groups, including
Savoy Brown, Fleetwood Mac and Johnny Winter.
Allison, 34, has been in the music business 18 years.
"I was raised in the streets, that's why I play the blues," he said.
Allison is known for "Chicago-style blues," the persistent 12-bar
blues shuffle. He has been called a virtuoso on the lead guitar.
Now backed by drums, bass and organ, Allison also has traveled with
bands that have eight members.
After years of relative obscurity, Horton and Allison are receiving public
attention and have cut new records.
Tickets for the performance tonight are available at the Union south
desk and Dirt Cheap. They cost $2 for UNL students and $3.50 for the

Haymarket Gallery Show
Two art collections on the heritage of
the plains will be shown in the Haymarket
Art Gallery, 119 So. 9th St., beginning
The first, showing until Oct. 13, is a se
lection of water-colors and drawings by the
late Mrs. H.C. Filley.
Culled from the collections of children
and friends by her daughter, Mrs. Ed
Schwartzkopf, Filley' work is noted for
both its delicacy of coloration and its flow
ing draftsmanship, marred only by an
occasional awkwardness of perspective.
The second, on display until Oct. 27, is
the Haymarket's major 1975 group exhi
bition. Entitled Heritage: Prairie .Archi
tecture, the exhibit features the work of
fifty area artists, portraying both the
common and the seldom seen aspects of
edifices that dot the Midwest plains.
Standouts in the exhibit include "Arm
istice Day" and "Quilt Show" by Ted
Koosier, "Boarded Up" by Michael Weirl
and "Sunlight" by Diane Ostdick.
Although the show has a number of
pieces suffering from a void of artistic
technique or vision, much of the exhibit
remains a satisfying remembrance of the
austere beauty that marks the Midwest.
Saturday, Oct. 4, Jefferson Starship will
make it's first Lincoln appearance at 8 pjn.
in Pershing Auditorium.
Their current hit, "Miracles," on the
Red Octopus album, is ranked number 15
