An Evening of Blues

Florida Theater - Manew Blew and The LadyFirday, July 1, 2016 at 7:30pm

Amelia Musical Playhouse welcomes the acoustic blues duo of Tom Leon and Manew Blue. Tom and Manew recently played at AMP in Solomon Johnson’s Songs of a People and liked the venue so much they decided to come back for an evening of blues. Tom plays guitar, Manew plays harmonica, and they both sing. They are passionate about the roots of blues music and ardently give it back to us. They are both natives of France and a few years ago decided to settle in north Florida.

Manew Blew won the title of “Florida Harmonica Grand Champion 2013-14.” He has played with many Mississippi and Memphis bluesmen and women, including Big Joe Turner, Ms. Nickki, Super Chikan, and Mud Morganfield – the eldest son of Muddy Waters. He will be performing some original material as well.

Tom Leon will play acoustic guitar and play and sing blues standards from Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson, and BB King. He also plays a mean slide guitar!
