Florida’s rising young blues star Selwyn Birchwood will give a FREE performance as part of the Wednesday Night Concert Series at the Village of Baytowne Wharf Events Plaza in Miramar Beach Wednesday, May 10, at 7 p.m.
Birchwood received both the Blues Music Award and Living Blues Critics’ Award for Best Debut Album Of 2014 for his Alligator Records LP Don’t Call No Ambulance.
Birchwood is a guitar and lap-steel-playing bundle of pure energy who delivers his original songs with a revival tent preacher’s fervor and a natural storyteller’s charisma. He plays high-octane blues—at once deeply rooted, funky and up-to-the-minute—with true passion and honest emotion.
Living Blues says, “Selwyn Birchwood is making waves, surprising people and defying expectations. Be on the lookout. He revels in the unexpected.”
Birchwood’s new album, Pick Your Poison, will be released on May 19.
