Nashville’s Rickey Godfrey will be working his Telecaster at Mama Rue’s Blues Garden in Pawleys Island, S.C. on Wednesday evening, April 13. In a performance that begins at 7:30, Rickey will play tunes from his new blues CD, Nasty Man, along with blues standards and other Rickey Godfrey originals.
Rickey said, “I’m excited to be playing at Mama Rue’s. It’s my first time there, and just from talking with Marrue on the phone, it feels right. I can’t wait!”
Marrue Bleau is the owner of the cozy café that serves up local seafood and spicy Jamaican cuisine. An indoor stage easily handles a duo or solo act, but when the weather permits, the music moves to the garden bar out back. Mama Rue’s is open Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday, 11 a.m. to 12:30 a.m.; and Saturday, 11 a.m. – midnight. The intimate lowcountry spot is known for its lowdown island cooking and Chef Eric’s Jamaican specialties such as jerk pork and jerk chicken.
Mama Rue’s is located at 9737 Ocean Hwy, Pawleys Island, S.C. 29585. Telephone number is 843-235-3853.
