DAN CAPPELLAZZO/STAFF PHOTOGRAPHERNiagara Falls - 97 year old blues legend Pine Top Perkins and Steady Rollin’ Bob Margolin, formerly with the Muddy Waters Band headline the Third Annual Niagara Falls Blues Festival on Old Fall Street Saturday evening. Perkins and Margolin were joined by fellow legends of the Chicago blues scene Hubert Sumlin, who played on Howlin’ Wolf’s mid-60’s Chess Record recordings and Matt Guitar Murphy, who was part of the original Blues Brothers Band. Mayor Paul Dyster, an avid fan of the blues, introduced the headlines proclaiming that Niagara Falls had taken back September 11th from the terrorists and given to the positive power of the blues. Hundreds packed Old Falls Street to see and hear these legends of American music, one would have to think that it will be the last time Perkins and Sumlin will perform live in the Cataract City if at all.
