The Open Book Coffeehouse continues its 2023-2024 season on Saturday evening, February 17 with the award-winning blues duo Beaucoup Blue. The coffeehouse is located at the Canton Public Library, 786 Washington Street, Canton. Doors open at 6:45 PM; music starts at 7:30 PM. Admission is $15 for the general public and $8 for students of any age. Tickets are available that evening on a first come, first served basis. (cash or checks).

Beaucoup Blue is the Americana Philadelphia-based group of David and Adrian Mowry. Father and son have been performing their roots based music nationally and internationally as a duo, quartet and on occasion quintet. Bridging many gaps in American music, their soulful traditional and contemporary styles mesh into an innovative and authentic sound. Although blues is a staple in their repertoire, they base their love in music from folk to soul to R&B, jazz, country, and bluegrass. All these interests and influences come out in their original song-writing in a unique way. Beaucoup Blue has released three albums: “Out Of The Woodwork”, “Hearts At Home”, and “Free To Fall.” They have won awards in songwriting, as showcase artists, in acoustic competitions, and placed high in many national airplay lists.

Sarah Craig of Caffe Lena, America’s oldest continuously running coffeehouse, says of Beaucoup Blue: “...This powerful yet gentle father-and-son duo gets their audience lost in reverie with arrestingly soulful blues-based music. Their original songs blend folk, R&B, jazz, country, and bluegrass together in songs that might be classics, or might just sound like it.” Hear for yourself two generations coming together for the common good of great music everywhere.

Additionally, a special raffle ticket prize that will be offered is pair of tickets for the Friends of the Library Comedy Night, good for shows at either 7 p.m. or 9 p.m. on Saturday, February 24th.  Raffle tickets are just $1 each, or 6 for $5.
