Music of the '20s and '30s to be performed Monday Paul Dandy, singer and guitarist from Rochester, MN, will be joined by national touring and recording artist Ben Weaver to present a brown bag lunch program of American music from the 1920s and '30s at the Shrine to Music Museum, Monday, July 12, at 12:05 p.m.
Paul Dandy, called "The greatest entertainer I have seen" by the late Tiny Tim, revives and revitalizes America's rich musical heritage, inspired by such artists as Jelly Roll Morton, Blind Blake and Al Jolson. He is currently on tour to promote his debut album, "Lemonade Music."
Ben Weaver, a singer-songwriter who specializes in folk and acoustic music, has released an album that includes Grammy nominated artist Greg Brown and blues legend Tony Glover.
Together, Dandy and Weaver specialize in original folk, ragtime, vaudeville, dixie-blues, traditional jazz and jug band music. Recent appearances include a European tour that culminated at the Festival International de Musique in Paris, a pre-game Superbowl show, and numerous radio and television appearances.
The Museum's brown bag lunch programs are free and open to the public.
