“Benny Bleu is a fresh voice that speaks to the roots of country, old time, and authentic American music.” – John Bernunzio
With The Brothers Blue, The Crawdiddies, and as the banjo player for the well respected Mount Pleasant String Band, Benny's playing is versatile and of the highest caliber. He now emerges with his new solo project, Warm Prickly. The album is half old-time tunes and country favorites and half original songs which focus on compassion towards those facing homelessness, addiction, and loneliness. Benny blends old-timey fiddle and banjo sounds with elements of Country and Cajun music forging an earthy yet atmospheric palette, always focused on the feel.
