FREE SHOW SPONSORED BY TRIANGLE BLUES SOCIETY

In 2007, TBS added a solo/duo category to its Blues Challenge. Andy Coats won did TBS proud in Memphis. As an individual, he's also been a stellar ambassador for TBS, North Carolina and blues this past year.

A guitarist-singer-songwriter, Andy Coats has performed coast to coast, including live shows on NPR. Selected as an Emerging Artist for the 2006 Arkansas Blues & Heritage Festival, he's also played internationally esteemed venues such as B.B. King's in Los Angeles.

He's opened for nationals including Eric Sardinas and W.C. Handy Award Winner Rod Piazza & the Mighty Flyers. Andy is helping keep the unique finger-picking technique of Piedmont Blues alive and is honored to have been selected to perform a solo set at the 2008 Eno Festival in a slot traditionally reserved for elderly statesmen.

Under 70, doing finger-pickin' blues. Don't see much of that, folks.

Young people who take up NC heritage art forms are all that keeps our traditions from dying out. Andy's sure been doing his part so let's do ours by coming out on the 19th to show our appreciation!
