Selwyn Birchwood stumbled upon the Blues at age seventeen while attending a Buddy Guy concert in Orlando. After witnessing the raw energy and power the music created first hand, he decided it was what he wanted to pursue. He has spent the years since then trying to hone his skill to convey the same intensity and feeling of the blues greats. After seeing him perform in a local club, Texas Bluesman Sonny Rhodes offered him the chance to hit the road and tour nationally. Selwyn quickly took advan­tage of the opportunity and has frequently toured with his blues mentor across the U.S. and Canada at many premiere venues including: “Terra Blues” in New York City, “Big Muddy Blues Festival” in St. Louis, “Beltline Blues Fest” in Calgary, Alberta, and “Buddy Guy’s Legends” in Chicago. Selwyn is backed by a rock­solid rhythm section that is as bluesy as it gets. Auggie Antoine (Bass) was a regular at Kingsnake Re­cords in Sanford, Fl. In its heyday Kingsnake turned out records for many notable art­ists including Ace Moreland, Rufus Thomas, and Kenny Neal. The band also fea­tures Dave Scitney (Drums) who adds his own style keeping the pulse of their unique brand of swampy Florida Blues. They will appear on Sunday at noon.
