Colin Aberdeen and Max Eyle to Perform Live Stream Event from Earlville Opera House

The Earlville Opera House will present Central New York blues greats Colin Aberdeen and Max Eyle streaming live from the historic EOH stage on its Facebook page, May 21 at 7:00 p.m. This is a give-what-you-like event with all proceeds supporting the programs and services of the Earlville Opera House as the fabled venue poises to re-open. 

Colin Aberdeen is an Australian-born vocalist and guitar player based in Syracuse, specializing in blues, soul, ragtime, and a variety of other American roots traditions. He is the frontman for the genre-defying roots rockers Los Blancos. In his two decades of live performance, Aberdeen has recorded with Grammy award-winning artists, toured nationally, and received a number of local awards including a SAMMY (Syracuse Area Music Award), and has earned a variety of awards in his career including repeat honors of favorite guitarist and vocalist in Blues Connection and Syracuse New Times. 

Inspired by the music of Paul Butterfield, Dr. John, Taj Mahal, and many others, Max Eyle is part of the new generation of New York State roots musicians. A native of Syracuse, Eyle continues to entertain audiences throughout the area. He has performed at the New York State Blues Festival, Taste of Syracuse, Earlville Opera House, The Palace Theater, Smith Opera House, Dinosaur BBQ, and a range of other venues. Eyle has recorded on multiple studio projects including Diana Jacob’s album entitled What She Needs, featuring six-time Grammy award winner Randy Brecker (more at 

Since 2014, Eyle has regularly accompanied Aberdeen on the harmonica. The two often break beyond the blues format performing material not often attempted by duo performers, particularly on the harmonica. For the last two years, they were selected to open the show for the New York State Blues Festival fundraiser – a privilege they were honored to accept from the community they serve.
