Benny Bleu

“Easygoing pluck and twang.” – Frank DeBlase, CITY Newspaper

New record ‘Swatting the Flies’ releases on July 3rd!

Laid back modern old time music, done just the way only Benny Bleu can deu

Peter Thompson, a really good dude.

Playing with The Brothers Blue, The Crawdiddies, and as the banjo player for the well respected Mount Pleasant String Band, Benny has shown that his playing is versatile and of the highest caliber. His latest full-length project, Warm Prickly is half old-time tunes and country favorites and half original songs which focus on compassion towards those facing homelessness, addiction, and loneliness. Benny blends old-timey fiddle and banjo sounds with elements of Country and Cajun music forging an earthy yet atmospheric palette, always focused on the feel.

“Benny Bleu is a fresh voice that speaks to the roots of country, old time, and authentic American music.” – John Bernunzio
