Blueswoman Del Rey Visits Acoustic Brew Concert Series
Del Rey is paving the way for women playing the blues.
Rey is the next performer in the spring 2014 season of the Acoustic Brew Concert Series. Her guitar and ukulele playing are influenced by country blues, stride piano, classic jazz and hillbilly boogie.
She frequently collaborates with fellow blues guitarist Steve James, who performed at Acoustic Brew in 2012.
Her live show is full of complex grooves and sly humor. One review describes it as "Virtuosic in just the right way, which is to say, in order to realize a musical idea. A very nice unlikely blend of things, accessible, slightly nostalgic, but fresh and thoughtful."
Rey will perform an unplugged concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 5 at the Center for Well-Being, 123 Mount Nittany Rd., Lemont. For more information on Rey, visit delreyplays.com.
Tickets can be purchased online at acousticbrew.org, at Webster's Bookstore Cafe or Nature's Pantry in State College, or at the door. Penn State students will receive a $2 discount (or refund if purchased online) at the door with a student ID.
The spring 2014 season of the Acoustic Brew Concert Series continues with blues guitarist bluegrass band Pesky J. Nixon April 26 and female folk trio Boxcar Lilies May 17. For more information about the series, visit acousticbrew.org.
