Gaston County Museum will host the performance of Abe Reid, as part of the 16th Annual “Blues out Back” free summer concert series on Friday, May 9th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. This family friendly concert will take place on the lawn behind the museum and is sponsored by CNC-KE Manufacturing.
Abe Reid is a master of growling out old tunes. His authentic finger picking style with the guitar has lots of new squeaks and squonks to unleash on the unsuspecting. Abe’s style inspires countless imitations and makes getting the blues enjoyable. He’s an innovator, creating infectious melodies that deliver potent assaults on the English language.
“Abe Reid is full of soul and emotion. “He’s got a voice that’ll make you clap your hands and shout Amen!” -Creative Loafing: Charlotte
“Abe Reid is a young, die-hard living bluesman,” said Dave Moskal, Bad Dog Blues Radio
Blues out Back is held the second Friday of the month from May until September. The museum encourages folks to bring along blankets, lawn chairs, and a picnic for an evening of great music with friends and family.
