Delta Echoes & Delta Ladies Sat 13th Feb

Delta Echoes www.deltaechoes.co.uk are a duo who re-create the country blues, hokum and gospel music of the 1920s and 30s, played on Gibson acoustic and National steel guitars (most of them older than their players!), harmonica and kazoo.

The Delta echoes

They are: Richard Scruton, well-known on the local folk and blues scene and an authentic interpreter of the guitar picking of the great Delta bluesmen, and Stuart Cumberpatch, who has been playing lap style and bottleneck blues on vintage National guitars for the last 20 years – ten of them with the legendary Kennet Sheiks. The duo occasionally expands to a trio or quartet with added double bass and harmonica. Stuart also plays in National Steel, a duo with Lewis Cohen, also listed on Lemonrock, as well as giving tuition in the black arts of slide guitar and lap-steel guitar.

Delta Ladies

Imagine the high lonesome sound of a mountain fiddle and bluegrass guitar, the knife edge of Delta slide guitar, the fluid jazz violin of Stephan Grapelli, the songs of Hendrix & Dylan with the addition of Gypsy violin and flamenco tinged guitar, using guitars, fiddles, mandolin and the unique chromatic dulcimer…Imagine music that contains all of these magical elements, great songs like Hey Joe, but with Gypsy violin, Night and Day with dark passion…songs about the railway, about the devil and about life…Imagine all of this, then the added spice of startling original tunes..

From Delta blues to Jazz,
From Gershwin to grunge,
From Vaudeville to Voodoo child..
