Bay Allen

The 2023 Winner of the Blues Society of Western Pennsylvania Blues Challenge in the Solo/Duo category!!

“Big” Bay Allen has been playing guitar for more than thirty years, writing songs since the first week he picked up a guitar. He leans towards a Piedmont Blues style, fused with other Country Blues soundscapes…but plays electric guitar, and other instruments, too! (He’s actually pretty good on the autoharp!)
Bay is endorsed by, and proudly plays, Paige Capos.
