Marc Black with Beaucoup Blue

Marc Black
Marc plays a finger style blues in the traditions of Mississippi Hurt and the great Tim Hardin. A proud road warrior, he was inducted into the New York Chapter of the Blues Hall of Fame in June of 2014. Marc has performed and recorded with Art Garfunkel, Taj Mahal, Richie Havens, Rick Danko and Garth Hudson to name a few. He was recently named Folk Artist of the Year on ABC Radio, a winner at the Kerrville Folk Festival and he was chosen to accompany Pete Seeger at the Folk Music Hall of Fame fundraiser shortly before Pete passed on.

Beaucoup Blue is the Americana Philadelphia based group of David and Adrian Mowry. Father and son have been performing their roots based music nationally and internationally as a duo, quartet and on occasion quintet. Bridging many gaps in American music, their soulful traditional and contemporary styles mesh into an innovative and authentic sound. Although blues is a staple in their repertoire, they base their love in music from Folk, Soul, R and B, Jazz, Country and Bluegrass. All these interests and influences come out in their original song-writing in a unique way. Beaucoup Blue had previously released two albums: “Out Of The Woodwork” 2003, and “Hearts At Home” 2005. The long awaited third album “Free To Fall” is produced by Grammy nominated Jim Salamone. A handsome range of instruments like six and twelve string guitars, slide guitar, round neck resonator guitar, combined with two soulful voices, encompasses a rich and honest feel, noticeably influenced by familial ties. Hear for yourself two generations coming together for the common good of great music everywhere.

Grand Prize Winner of the Billboard World Song-Writing Contest

#8 on Roots Music Report's Folk Top 50
Winner of the 2006 Telluride Blues & Brews Acoustic Competition
