The free concert was the first offered from the Pasco County Libraries Passport Concert Series. The six-concert series, will take place on Sundays through Nov. 3, at various Pasco County libraries. Besides the blues, the concerts will feature pop, Latin, bluegrass, classical, disco, and jazz. Next up, Hugh Embry Branch Library in Dade City will host Latin music on Oct. 6, and the Land O’Lakes Branch Library will host bluegrass on Oct. 13. The Sarasota Slim band is part of the Suncoast Blues Society’s outreach program, that brings concerts to libraries and schools. The Passport Concert Series is made possible with funding from the Friends of the Library organization and the Otis G. Pike Charitable Trust.
