Gary Van Miert is a singer, songwriter, musician and all-around entertainer who specializes in American Roots Music. He has his own unique interpretation of traditional American music - classic country tunes from the fifties and sixties, and time-honored blues numbers that go back to the greats hailing from Mississippi and Chicago. His electrifying singing and performance style is a throwback to the down home spiritual songs and performers from the golden age of gospel. He performs and records under the band name “The Sensational Country Blues Wonders!”
Gary will give a brief talk and present a video of his song “My Baby Stabbed Me with a Steak Knife.” The song is a modern day murder ballad from his new album “The World Will Break Your Heart.” This release is a 10-song cycle resting firmly in the Americana genre of music.
