Blues band members ready for March 27 gig

Two original songs by vocalist Jesse Sappington will be included in the 16-song set on tap at the Blues Band concert on campus at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 27, in the Bruce Owen Theater.

Sappington said his songs are inspired by life.

“‘Dying’ is a song I wrote after a heartbreak,” Sappington said. “It’s kind of a slow bluesy jam about how you give everything and it’s not enough. And you finally say OK and you leave.”

The second song is entitled “Runnin’.”
