Blues lady Eden Brent is a piano-pounding, juke-joint hollering powerhouse of American roots music. A legendary performer and southern songwriter, she spent the first two decades of her career under the tutelage of famed pianist Abie “Boogaloo” Ames before winning the Blues Foundation’s Challenge and bouncing onto the international scene. Since then she lands steady honors and tours the world playing festivals, concerts and juke joints as a solo artist and also with her band. In addition to her lively performances, Brent offers educational programs such as Blues in the Schools, Boogie-Woogie and Blues Piano demonstrations and workshops, and she is a popular panelist at Piano Blues, Blues Women, and Mississippi Blues discussions. A former MAC Folk Arts Fellowship recipient, this three-time Blues Music Award winner is recognized as one of today’s leading blues artists and continues the legacy of Mississippi’s trailblazing blues women like Lucille Bogan, Memphis Minnie, Lil Green, and Denise LaSalle.
