“Meet Me Where They Play the Blues!” That is the invitation from jazz musician Eddie Piccard.

The Eddie Piccard Quartet and the Busch Brothers will once again join forces at the First Street Community Center in Mount Vernon on Saturday, November 10, at 7:30 pm. The program will likely include “Pete Kelly’s Blues,” “The St. Louis Blues,” “The Salt Lake City Blues,” and many other blues songs and traditional jazz numbers.

“The blues is quintessentially American,” Eddie says. “The music grew out of the songs of Afro-American slaves and field hands in the South. The blues contains so many emotions, including joy, sorrow, and determination. The words may at first sound down, but the music always brings you up.

We love playing for the audience that comes to the Mount Vernon events, and we know people will love hearing this music. It’s classic.”
