Benny Bleu

Benny Bleu is my solo act. Sometimes it’s just me and sometimes it’s with the whole Benny Bleu Band. I play a mix of banjo, guitar, harmonica, and fiddle drawing from country blues, old-time, and Cajun sounds.

I am super excited to be releasing my first solo album, Warm Prickly, due out Spring 2019. Recorded in Maine in a tiny cottage, it consists of favorite country classics, my weird interpretations of old-time fiddle tunes, and several new original pieces focusing on compassion towards those facing homelessness, addiction, and loneliness. A warm embrace for folks who are too often perceived as prickly people.

Coming out March 29 at The Little Theatre Cafe in Rochester, NY.   Album Art by Honeoye, NY artist Jeff Moores.

The Brothers Blue

We are an accomplished folk trio rooted in the tradition of old-time fiddle music.  We have played all over the northeast United States and were featured Emerging Artists at the 2017 Grey Fox Bluegrass festival.

 Mount Pleasant String Band

A raucous-fun old-time troop out of Naples, NY.  Featuring the burning hot fiddling of Aaron Lipp.

 The Crawdiddies

A Rochester staple – we’re the longest running Washboard/Banjo/Delta-Blues Guitar band in the land.
