Eden Brent


The YMCA welcomes Mississippi blues legend Eden Brent to Central New York, to benefit the YMCA of the Greater Tri-Valley arts programs.
Nicknamed "Little Boogaloo" by her Mississippi mentor Boogaloo Ames, Eden Brent is much more than her signature boogie-woogie piano and juke-joint blues holler. She is a celebrated songwriter and dynamic performer, with numerous nominations and awards including eleven Blues Music Award nominations since 2009 and three BMA trophies. Her most recent Yellow Dog Records album, Jigsaw Heart was nominated for BMA Acoustic Album of the Year, continuing a streak of nominations for her last three albums.
The YMCA offers a variety of programs for the entire family and never turns anyone away based on their inability to pay for programs. They also have a long- standing music and arts program that include private and group lessons to help further its Christian mission to put principles into practice that help build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. The YMCA thanks Eden Brent and The Nelson Odeon for their support of our efforts. For more information about the Y, please visit
