The Selwyn Birchwood Band

Saturday, November 16, 8pm

Free Conversation with the Artists at 3pm

The Selwyn Birchwood Band delivers high-octane blues – at once deeply rooted, funky and up-to-the-minute. With his fiery guitar, lap steel playing, and trailblazing, instantly memorable songs and gritty vocals, Birchwood, a tough, next generation bluesman with a touch of Chicago style, Southern soul and boogie is one of the most extraordinary young stars in the blues. His debut album, Don’t Call No Ambulance, featuring saxophonist Regi Oliver, bassist Huff Wright and drummer Courtney “Big Love” Girlie, received the Living Blues Critics’ Best Blues Debut Album.

“A powerhouse player and emotive performer … his band, his material and both his skilled guitaring and soulful vocals are the essence of fully-formed. Birchwood is a major player. Highly recommended.”

– Rolling Stone
