About This Event
Groundbreaking young blues visionary Selwyn Birchwood will release his highly anticipated third Alligator album, Living In A Burning House, on Friday, January 29, 2021. The rising guitar and lap steel player calls his original music electric swamp funkin blues, defined by raw and soulful musicianship played with fire-and-brimstone fervor. His gritty, unvarnished vocals draw his audience deep inside his unforgettable tales of love, passion, pain and pleasure. No other band on the current blues scene is built quite like Birchwoods. In addition to Selwyns electrifying guitar and lap steel playing, the other featured instrument is Regi Olivers driving baritone sax. The group is rounded out by bass, drums and, for the first time, keyboards.
