Beaucoup Blue Playing Steel City on April 23rd

Award winning father-son duo Beaucoup Blue will be playing at Steel City Coffee House on Saturday, April 23rd.

Beaucoup Blue is the Americana Philadelphia based duo 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&B, Jazz, Country and Bluegrass. All these interests and influences come out in their original song-writing in a unique way. 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.

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. The project features a world class rhythm section including Jeff Sheard on drums, Bill Zinno on acoustic upright bass as well as the extraordinary talents of a few friends. A guest appearance of Universal recording artist Melody Gardot, and the ‘Americana Angels’ of Red Molly contributed their voices to this important work in classic proportion.

Beaucoup Blue will be performing at The Steel City Coffeehouse 203 Bridge St Phoenixville, PA with Danielle Miraglia Saturday April 23rd at 8:30 PM.

Awards Beaucoup Blue has received
  • 1st Place Winner of Billboard Magazine World Song Writing Contest
  • Reached Top 40 on AMA & Folk Radio Charts
  • 1st Place Winner of Telluride Blues Competition

Other recognition

Sarah Craig of Caffe Lena America’s Oldest Continuously Running Coffeehouse says of Beaucoup Blue: “...This powerful yet gentle father-and-son duo gets their audience lost in reverie with arrestingly soulful blues-based music. Their original songs blend folk, R&B, jazz, country, and bluegrass together in songs that might be classics, or might just sound like it.”

Sing Out! Magazine.- “Their voices work superbly together, frequently attaining a mesmeric panache that must be thrilling to view in person. Beaucoup Blue is a versatile, imaginative team that has something to say and say it with an adventurous sense of personality from the bottom of their hearts.”

Richard Cucarro from Acoustic Live NYC says- ”David's slide guitar is the first thing you notice. In tandem with Adrian's deft finger-picking it's precision and grace is the aural equivalent of a hot fudge sundae.”

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.
