Black Velvet

There is so much interesting entertainment available on the Inner Harbour Causeway that I often neglect the many performers who provide music in other downtown locations. Above is a musician I look forward to listening to again. His name is Michael Thompson, AKA "Black Velvet" - a name that goes perfectly with a voice that sounds marinated in whiskey when he sings the blues on Fisgard Street. Michael says he has to sing because he has all these songs in his head and his neighbors complain if he lets them loose when he's at home. I'm glad his neighbors have got such poor taste since I found it a real pleasure to sit and listen to this accomplished performer.
