Blue Eyed Bettys CD Release Party

Friday, December 12, 2014 - 8:00pm
525 Kumquat Ct
Sarasota  Florida  34230
United States
With Daniel Emond on banjo, Sarah Hund on fiddle, and Ben Mackel on guitar (often joined by Jamie Mohamdein on upright bass), The Blue Eyed Bettys delight with their folky-bluegrass sound. But what always seems to grab audiences immediately are their powerful vocals in three part harmony. All actors by trade, The Blue Eyed Bettys met while doing a new play together at the Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota, FL. They are singers and storytellers first; therein lies their ability to turn boisterous bars into attentive listening rooms and sleepy pubs into raucous parties as they weave stories of life and love with their exuberant performances.
