NEW CD Distributed through Black Market Music Melb 03-9326-8886  bmmusic@rainbow.net.au
Their live set encompasses a myriad of blues and roots styles, from the urban Blues of Chicago to the Blues and Cajun of the Delta and across to the Bluegrass of Kentucky. They traverse the timeline from the 1920’s to the 1980’s and pay deep respect to the true legends, Robert Johnson, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Sleepy John Estes, John Hurt, Son House and Doc Watson and many more. They also throw a few of their own in, but you wouldn’t know, such is their deep affinity with the genre.P.Cummins 3SER Melb
