Blues Brunch: Felix Slim presented by HVBS
One of Spains leading blues musicians and based nowadays in Brooklyn, New York, Felix Slim is entirely self-taught and specializes in blues, ragtime and swing from the 1920s to 1940s. Influenced by the Delta, Piedmont and Texas sound, he uses slide guitar, fingerpicking and standard and open tunings, and has played his dynamic versions of blues classics and original songs with echoes of flamenco, rebetiko and jazz manouche on five albums and in over ten countries worldwide. Expertly playing and swapping between the harmonica and kazoo, Slims unique singing voice complements these instruments, creating a fresh and distinctive yet true vintage sound which made him finalist in the 2017 and 2018 International Blues Challenge.*****About the Hudson Valley Blues SocietyThe Hudson Valley Blues Society (HVBS) was founded in 2018 and is dedicated to preserving and promoting Blues music throughout the New York Hudson Valley area.
