From the Delta and Beyond 'CD Release'
From the Delta and Beyond 'CD Release'
I started the “From the Delta and Beyond” project back in 2015 as an outgrowth of my performance and teaching of prewar acoustic blues. I focused on players such as Robert Johnson, Skip James, Big Bill Broonzy, Son House, Mississippi John Hurt, and others. I am primarily a guitar player, not a singer, so I enlisted Bay Area vocalist Celeste Kopel to give some authority and soul to the proceedings. We brought in ace bass and harmonica player Chuck Ervin (Sylvia Herold Ensemble, Euphonia, Spin Cats), Max Cowan on piano and Hammond B3 (Atta Kid, Otis McDonald, Zigaboo Modeliste), and drummer Nelson B. Santos (Bullheads, Centsation Band) and created a CD that spans the gamut from acoustic duets to three-piece ensembles to full-on electric rockin’ blues.
