SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Well into their third decade, Shreveport’s Bluebirds continue to soar into new areas of music.

The latest incarnation for this storied group, born from the ashes of A Train in 1986, is tres Bluebirds, which has been, in recent years, a fixture at area casino nightclubs, special events and festivals.

For several years until about a year ago the band was six or seven players strong and went by the name Robin and the Bluebirds, based on the historic name of the band and the inclusion of talented local singer Robin Beach Black, the effervescent and versatile daughter of local blues guitarist and songwriter Jerry Beach.

Beach performed with his daughter and provided the signature guitar sound in the band since the departure of its longtime picker, Buddy Flett.
