FreeNote Music announces the MicroTime Tour featuring New York City's Harmonically Tuned electric blues ensembles, 13 O'Clock Blues Band and Willie McBlind, both led by innovative guitarist and composer, Jon Catler. MicroTime will cut a swath of the Northeast, with appearances slated in Jersey City, Boston and New York City.

The MicroTime Tour lands on the Upper West Side of Manhattan on Friday, June 19th at 8pm at The Triad. This show will highlight charismatic electric Delta blues act Willie McBlind in the release of its eagerly awaited second CD, Bad Thing, with 13 O'Clock Blues Band capping off the evening. The show will begin with a discussion and demonstration of Harmonic Blues led by Catler. Admission at door $15. www.thetriadnyc.com.

At the helm of 13 O'Clock Blues Band, Jon Catler has received a grant from Meet The Composer's Creative Connections to present his work in all 3 cities, giving the audience the opportunity to glimpse inside Catler's progressive ideas on Harmonic Rhythm. Known for his work with legendary composer La Monte Young, Catler has delved deeply into the Harmonic Series producing long form pieces that glean rhythmic and lyrical material directly from the Overtone Series.
