Blues guitar ace Tinsley Ellis can’t recall every time he’s performed in Knoxville, but one in particular stands out — mostly because it seems every time he comes back here, he runs into another fan who remembers it.

Feb. 5, 1984 at the Alumni Memorial Gym on the University of Tennessee campus — he’s got a poster promoting the show hanging in his house. And it never fails, he told The Daily Times this week — any time he plays the East Tennessee area, as he’ll do on Saturday night at “The Shed” at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson in Maryville, he’ll run into someone else who claims they were in attendance.
