Boogie Woogie with a heart
Eric “Two Scoops” Moore is a big, gregarious man who's released seven critically-acclaimed CDs. The Washington Blues Society has honored him with numerous awards. Perhaps more than those accomplishments, the blues musician is better known for his musical spontaneity and his big heart.
Despite life's challenges and some true hardships, he retains a keen sense of optimism. Flesh eating disease? No problem. His wife Amy's multiple sclerosis? That's easy. You find out why when you listen to his philosophy. The wild look in his kind eyes starts to tell the story. His uncanny connection with a piano punctuates it.
"TwoScoops" Moore grew up making music, beginning at the age of five, in Boston. He now calls Seattle home, and you can find him playing around the area.
KPLU's John Maynard caught up with him at the New Orleans Cafe in Pioneer Square, where he captured these short videos.
