Local blues singer/pianist Gary Erwin (a.k.a. Shrimp City Slim) recently completed a two-week tour of Holland, Poland, and France, and he’s gearing up for a busy fall and winter of solo and full-band gigs around the Lowcountry.


Erwin also recently independently released a new live album from an old concert. Highway 77: Lowcountry Blues Live (Vol 2), featuring tunes recorded at a full-band in 2000 at a gig in Charlotte, N.C. The collection is available online at shrimpcityslim.com.

Look and listen for Erwin every Wednesday evening at the Southern Seasons Grill in Summerville. Keep an eye out for ticket, venue, and artist updates on the 22nd Annual Lowcountry Blues Bash, the massive, multiple-venue, two-week festival Erwin organizes every February. See bluesbash.com for more.
