Coinciding with the Midnight Rum: Long Island and Prohibition exhibition on view at The Long Island Museum, the Sunday Street Series, joined by the Long Island Blues Society, will welcome Beaucoup Blue in concert on Sunday, July 9 at 7 p.m. Join them for a very special evening of great blues as well as some great brews for your enjoyment provided by The Port Jeff Brewing Company. Wine will also be available.
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 6- and 12-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, “Elixer.”
Bob Westcott will open the show. An accomplished finger-style guitarist, Westcott promises to share some songs from the Prohibition Era with the audience including Clayton McMichen’s 1930 classic, “The Prohibition Blues.”
Advance sale tickets are $20 at www.sundaystreet.org through Friday, July 7, with tickets at the door for $25 (cash only). For more information, call 631-751-0066.
