Shawn Holt & The Teardrops
The next generation of the blues is coming to Retro Live on Saturday October 6th with Swampcandy and Shawn Holt and the Teardops. Shawn Holt is the son of Blues Legend Magic Slim. This is real deal Chicago Blues coming to Plattsburgh with Shawn Holt carrying the electric guitar blues torch backed by the high energy, hard-driving band, The Teardrops.
Shawn Holt and The Teardrops are winners for Best New Artist Debut by the Blues Foundation (BMA) in 2014 as well as receiving the Blast Music Award for New Artist Debut Album. This is Chicago blues at its best!
Opening the show will be Swampcandy a brash young duo that transformed the genre of blues, taking one of American music’s oldest forms and rendering it brand new. Be prepared for some foot clapping’, hand stompin’, hair flying american music with roots fermented in American mud, field hollers, gypsy jazz, and ragtime that has been distilled in a boiler of mercurial energy swirling with tempo changes, dynamic peaks and valleys. Swamp candy was the first band presented by Plattsburgh Blues and Jazz as its opening show and we are so excited to have them back.
