New release from local SC Blues musician, Rev. Marv Ward

Great news! Our dear friend and SC Blues luminary, the right Reverend Marv Ward, has just finished his new CD for release in early 2012 (I think you can listen and download now, though)... here's the link to his FB music store!

The Rev. Marv Ward "pickin'"
Marv hails from the northeastern part of the USA, but has graced the capital city of South Carolina with his presence for many years.

He has opened for a long list of headliners with his unique style that emulates "that high, lonesome sound." As a member of some of Columbia SC's seminal Blues bands, such as Blues DeVille and Congaree, Marv has proven his capacity to work in several genres (rockin' hot Blues to Piedmont/Delta style duos) and he commands a solo stage admirably, too, as a regular performer at Utopia Food and Spirits. His sound ranges to include a folksy, Americana style. He's much like the songsters of old, such as Lead Belly, who could boast a wide range of styles to suit an array of audiences.

Blues Moon Radio listeners are enthralled with Marv's entertaining stories and songs each time he comes on the radio to play live, so we look forward to another visit in early 2012 when we will debut his new CD. Until then, you can enjoy his selections on his new Facebook Music Store page:
