Happy Hour with Married with Chitlins

Wednesday - September, 11 @ 5:00pm

Sometimes local and sometimes from away, the Happy Hour Music Series at BLUE brings you amazing performances from some of the best musicians around -  JUST LIKE ALL OF OUR SHOWS!!

.....only this time you get to enjoy our fantastic draft list, wines, and craft cocktails for a fraction of the price! (holy moly!)

This amazing acoustic duo,  Married with Chitlins, combines their talents to present a  performance unparalled  by few.  Chris plays guitar while Liz performs on fiddle.  Mandolin and harmonica are interspersed throughout their songs. Liz's vocals are evocative, while  Chris' harmonies blend seamlessly to provide a toe-tapping time. Their repertoire includes Traditional American music, Old Time Country and Blues, some Jazz standards and Celtic reels and jigs.

Frank John Hadley, Downbeat Magazine, had this to say about Liz:  “... Good singing, good musicianship and intelligent choice of material.” - 

Chris' background includes touring and recording as bass player in a band with Ben Orr (The Cars), recording and providing live sound support for Peter Wolf (J. Geils Band), as well as providing studio support for Carly Simon and Don Was. Blues Party - 1998

Just like all of our shows, musicians play for your generous donations!  **support the music!**
