AUBURN – Well-known musician Denny Breau, son of RCA recording artists Hal Lone Pine and Betty Cody, wil perform with the Perculators Sunday, Oct. 10, at the Midnight Blues club, 34 Court St., Auburn.

Breau’s recording credits include playing on albums with Schooner Fare, Don Campbell, Dick Curless, Melinda Liberty, Josee Vachon and blues great Pine Top Perkins. He has also done a number of jingles and sound tracks for radio and television, and arranged and produced albums for other artists.

Breau released one solo album of his own country songs, “Lotta My Old Man in Me,” as well as an album with Portland-based guitarist and singer-songwriter Brad Harnois titled “Winterwood.”

In 1996, Breau fulfilled a lifetime dream when he opened for Chet Atkins at the State Theater in Portland.

Breau maintains a solo career and is currently working on a solo CD. Within the past year, he has enjoyed guitar picking alongside some of the world’s premier acoustic guitarists, including Bryan Sutton, J.P. Cormier, Pat Donohue, Dan Crary and Harvey Reid.

Over the past 20 years, Breau has garnered numerous awards from the Maine Country Music Association. He earned Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Instrumentalist of the Year so many times that he was eventually retired from the running with an All-time Greats award.

Breau will perform as part of the Auburn club’s Sunday Night Blues Series showcasing national recording artists.
