Description:
Christiansburg Library and the Friends of the Library continue the 2018 Music On The Lawn Concert Series with Piedmont Bluz on Saturday, June 16, 2018.

The Piedmont Bluz acoustic duo are ambassadors of Country Blues music and the Piedmont style of fingerpicking, and their mission is to help preserve these rural, east coast traditions by educating audiences about this unique aspect of African American culture through musical entertainment. The husband and wife duo are much loved wherever they go and they feel that "there are stories to tell, people to remember, and things that must be said" so, in addition to tickling your ears with delightful music, they weave a bit of history into the presentation of each song.

In addition to performing at domestic venues such as the American Folk Art Museum, ArtsWestchester, Davis & Elkins College, Archie Edwards Blues Heritage Foundation, Jalopy Theatre, and Towne Crier Café - Piedmont Blu?z has also performed in Monaghan, Berlin, Sea of Galilee, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Madrid.

Inducted into the NY Blues Hall of Fame in 2018, the duo has been featured in numerous festivals including the Newport Folk Festival, Sugar Maple Festival, Harvest Time Blues Festival, Jacob's Ladder Festival, Tel Aviv Blues Festival, Clearwater Revival, and Brooklyn Folk Festival to name a few.

Both have taught workshops at the Archie Edwards Blues Heritage Foundation and at Blues in the Gorge, and Valerie has additionally taught workshops at Augusta's Blues & Swing Week and at the Port Townsend Acoustic Blues Workshop.
