“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.”
