About the Author: Art Beane’s singing career began as a child in the Saint James Episcopal Church choir in Houston, TX, and lasted about an hour. With the organ blaring “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God,” Art fainted dead away from heat and nervousness. It took 13 years before he gave singing another try with the Bradley University Community Chorus in 1967. He later joined The Helmsmen, an all-male singing group led by the late Richard Emery, and then The New Acapellas. Today, Art writes and sings his original blues tunes at open mic night venues. Art holds a doctorate in education from Boston University and in 2008 retired from a 40+ year career in education and administration. He currently lives in a fishing community north of Boston with his wife, Margaret Rose. They have seven grown children and five grandchildren.


  1. Hi, Kathleen!

    Thanks for introducing Waitin’ for Her at the Station. I love the blues in all its forms and would love to drop in at one of those venues that offer an open mic night. Decades ago I amassed a decent collection of 1940s/50s city and country blues on vinyl albums but foolishly parted with them (sold them to a record dealer for a tiny fraction of their worth) and converted to compact discs. Arthur's book promises to be a valuable resource for musicians or anyone interested in learn about this fascinating and diverse style of music.

    Thanks again for the review, dear friend Kathleen!

    1. I had a feeling you would like this. Yes, I think it sounds quite interesting and look forward to getting a copy. You should definitely seek out an open-mic night. I'm sure you'd be a hit!!!

  2. What a fascinating (and very different) premise.

  3. Hi Kathleen - what a great artist Arthur obviously is ... I'll definitely book mark his book - I love the idea of being able to learn from it - even though music might run through my veins, but its knowledge doesn't! So I will learn ... cheers Hilary

    1. He's an amazing man. Thanks for visiting!

  4. Awesome! Best wishes for much success.
