“A remarkable, contemporary bluesman…a powerhouse young guitarist and soulful vocalist…a major player…highly recommended”

–Rolling Stone


“Rising blues star Selwyn Birchwood is the real deal. Birchwood puts his own fresh spin on the blues, taking the tradition and making it into something new.”

–Guitar World


Groundbreaking young blues visionary Selwyn Birchwood will perform at The World Famous Buckingham Blues Bar in Fort Myers on Saturday, May 15 at 2 p.m. Birchwood’s latest release is his highly anticipated third Alligator album, “Living In A Burning House.” Birchwood calls his original music “electric swamp funkin’ blues,” defined by raw and soulful musicianship played with fire-and-brimstone fervor. His gritty, unvarnished vocals draw his audience deep inside his unforgettable tales of love, passion, pain and pleasure. No other band on the current blues scene is built quite like Birchwood’s. In addition to Selwyn’s electrifying guitar and lap steel playing, the other featured instrument is Regi Oliver’s driving baritone sax. The group is rounded out by bass, drums and, for the first time, keyboards.
