Beaucoup Blue, the father and son team of David and Adrian Mowry, features two soulful voices and acoustic slide guitar virtuosity. From blues to bluegrass, their traditional and contemporary styles mesh into an innovative and authentic sound. They pretty much cover the full range of Americana music quite uniquely in their songwriting and how they choose to represent classic material. During their years together as a duo they have received numerous awards including "Grand Prize Winner of the Billboard Magazine World Song-Writing Contest," and the "Grand Prize Winner of the Telluride Blues & Brews Acoustic Competition," as well as top 40 on AMA’s Americana, roots, and folk radio charts.
Next up in the 2014 Twilight on the Tavern Lawn concert series is an evening of high energy accordion/guitar driven dance music of Louisiana by Planet Zydeco on Sunday, July 27.
