River Blu – A Musical duo formed in the Poconos, PA

Barbara Reese & Jeremiah Williams playing guitar and singing at Shankara Restaurant in Bethlehem

A new musical duo has formed in the Pocono Mountains, located in Northeast Pennsylvania, named Blue River. The members of this musical duo are Barbara Reese and Jeremiah Williams. Both musicians play acoustic guitar and sing solo and harmonize.

Barbara Reese, a seasoned singer songwriter, has been performing for audiences for decades. Barbara blends originally written songs with other classic artists of the 60’s, 70’s and today. Barbara’s originals stand firmly on their own as beautiful and poignant, while many of Barbara’s preferred cover songs are written by Joni Mitchell. With this approach, Barbara Reese assembles a fantastic set while delivering powerfully healing lyrics which nourishes anyone’s appetite for a warm acoustic evening. When she decided to add Jeremiah Williams it brought her performance to the next level.

Jeremiah Williams has been playing and writing music for over 25 years. He has studied music both formally and on his own. While in school at Northampton Community College, his professor Erin Mclelland, pushed him to go further into his musical career through learning the proper foundations of music composition as well as the art of guitar playing. Since Erin’s teachings, Jeremiah has been propelled forward into a more modern approach to playing and composing. Jeremiah plays tastefully in the background while supporting Barbara’s delightful singing and open guitar tunings.

These two artists combined form the new duo called Blue River. They have recently become a staple on Friday evenings at a vegan restaurant in south side Bethlehem, called Shankara. The chef, Wendy, has traveled the world searching for recipes for the perfect vegan cuisine. If your in the mood for a nourishing evening through healthy food and beautiful music, stop in to Shanakara on Friday nights from 6 to 9 o’clock.
