An evening of "Blues and Brews" with Beaucoup Blue

Sunday. July 9th at 7 P.M. at The Long Island Museum, Rte.25A, Stony Brook

Coinciding with the "Midnight Rum: Long Island and Prohibition" exhibition on view at The Long Island Museum, WUSB's Sunday Street Series, joined by the Long island Blues Society, presents a very special evening of great blues as well as some great brews for your enjoyment provided by The Port Jeff Brewing Company. We’ll also have wine available at this show.

Beaucoup Blue is the father and son Philadelphia-based duo of David and Adrian Mowry. Although blues is a staple of their repertoire, they also cite musical influences from folk, soul, r&b, jazz, country and bluegrass. A handsome range of instruments, including six and twelve string guitars, slide guitar, and dobro and their two soulful voices blend together like only family members can. You'll hear their original compositions but also blues classics. They have recently released their fourth CD, ELIXIR. (www.beaucoupblue.com)

Bob Westcott will open this show. Bob is an accomplished finger-style guitarist and promises to share some songs from the Prohibition Era with us, including Clayton McMichen's 1930 classic, "The Prohibition Blues." (www.bobwestcott.com)
