Just wanted to share some photographs of our 1st Annual Brooklyn Big Eyed Blues Festival Youth Workshop. Twenty (20) community youths were selected to participate in workshops that included an introduction to blues guitar, harmonica and blues writing. All sessions were led by area professionals. Michael Hill of "The Michael Hill Blues Mob" (guitar), Keith "The Captain" Gamble (harmonica) and Tuliva Cumberbatch (blues writing), were among the professionals who pitched in. This year's workshop will take place on October 27, 2007. Forty youths will be selected to participate. You can help offset the cost of this year's workshop by sponsoring one child for $25. For further information, please contact Big Eyed Productions at 718-919-0697 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please enjoy the photos...and remember..."Keep Blues alive...let it live in Brooklyn!"

Just a little shout to all who missed last year's 1st Annual Brooklyn Big Eyed Blues Festival....you missed a grande time. We had the wonderful "Michael Hill Blues Mob", the simulating, gyrating "Keith "The Captain" Gamble and the Brand Nu Gypsies" and me performing with the Befo' Quotet. There were a couple of great historical movies shown by Walter Taylor (I call him the "movie guru"), good food, good spirits, and good spirits!
However, the most exciting and fulfilling aspect of the festival was early in the day, neighborhood youths were given workshops in blues guitar, harmonica and blueswriting. All classes were taught by professional musicians from the neighbor hood,
So, please get ready for this year's festival. We're going to be bringing you more top notch performances. Please mark your calendars and save the date...

Thirty youths will be chosen to participate in the workshop. Classes will be taught by area professionals, such as the outstanding vocalist, Tulivu Cumberbatch, The Blues captain, Keith Gamble and the 'Gentle Bear", Michael Hill, of the Michael Hill's Blues Mob.
We will bring in the evening with performances by Beareather Reddy & Quartet, Keith"The Captain" Gamble and the Brand Nu Gypsies and The Michael Hill's Blues Mob.
