Eden Brent 

When: Fri., Sept. 24, 7:30 p.m. 2010
Greenville, Mississippi, lies between New Orleans and Memphis, and so does the sound of Greenville native Eden Brent, a blues artist whose music combines Delta grit with Crescent City swing. A barrelhouse piano player and charismatic vocalist, Brent has emerged as one of the blues scene’s most promising contemporary artists over the past half-decade, winning the Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge in 2006 and winning two prizes (Acoustic Album and Acoustic Artist) at last year’s Blues Music Awards. Brent’s ascent is likely to continue. Her new album for the Memphis-based Yellow Dog Records, Ain’t Got No Troubles, is her best yet, showcasing the jaunty piano playing, juicy vocal phrasing, and assured songwriting that make her one of the genre’s most significant multi-threat talents. Brent plays the Levitt Shell on Friday, September 24th. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. and is free. — Chris Herrington
