Smoky Mountain Blues Society and Barley’s Maryville present Shawn Holt and the Teardrops
Shawn Holt, the son of legendary blues icon Magic Slim, is bringing the tradition of authentic soul-searching Chicago Blues to downtown Maryville.
The high-energy, hard-driving sound of The Teardrops is still alive and well and if you like what Magic Slim and The Teardrops have been doing for the last 35 years, you can continue to enjoy that unique sound and energy with Shawn Holt, a chip off the old block, fronting his dad’s band. Shawn has been playing blues since he was 17 and on tour with his father Slim’s brother, Uncle Nick Holt and the Teardrops. Shortly after that tour Shawn realized his genetic destiny (all the Holts are talented musicians). In 2014 Shawn Holt and the Teardrops won the Blues Blast Music Award for New Artist Debut Album for Daddy Told Me on Blind Pig records.
Doors open at 6 pm, show at 7 pm. $10 cash tickets at the door.
