TOMORROW!!!! SONS OF THE DELTA at The Bullfrog, Thursday 7th February


SONS OF THE DELTA - the FULL band - at The Bullfrog Blues club on Thursday
7th February!!!!

DON'T FORGET!!!!!!!

 The band have headlined the blues day at The Southsea Folk & Roots
Ferstival in the past. and have appeared at the Bullfrog as a duo, so we're
very much looking forward to what is bound to be a great night with this
fantastic band.  
 
Sons of the Delta were formed by two of the top bluesmen in the South West
U.K, Mark Cole and Rick Edwards. Mark is a powerful, passionate vocalist,
who also plays a pretty mean harp, slide and rhythm guitar, whist Rick is a
talented multi-style guitarist who delivers superb deep-south
acoustic/electric guitar and vocals. They play a no-nonsense blend of
electric and acoustic blues which includes traditional blues plus new
originals. Their music also features occasional sidesteps into other
American roots styles such as gospel, hillbilly, bluegrass, Cajun and
Texmex. 
 
In 2005 during a visit to Clarksdale, Mississippi, they played at a number
of clubs and juke joints including Morgan Freeman's club 'Ground Zero', and
recorded a CD at Jimbo Mathus's recording studio, Delta Recording. Guest
musicians on the CD included legendary bluesmen Sam Carr and Pinetop
Perkins. In 2006 they returned to the USA and played on the prestigious
Emerging Artist stage at the Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival in
Helena, Arkansas.

 
Between them Mark and Rick have played with or supported a great many
artistes including Mississippi Fred McDowell, Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup, Boz
Scaggs, Paul Lamb, Connie Lush. Kent DuChaine, Alison Moyet, Dr. Feelgood,
Chris Jagger (Mick's brother), Roy Wood, Steve Gibbons, Mike D'Abo, Phil
Beer (Rolling Stones session man as well as folk rock hero!), The Gutter
Brothers, Richard Thompson, guitar legend Alvin Lee (at the Glastonbury
Festival in 1994), Stan Webb's Chickenshack, Steve Marriott and Chicago
blues legend Eddie C. Campbell.
 
Martin Fitzgibbon and Adrian Deane complete the full four man band version
of Sons Of The Delta. Ade is an accomplished all-round bass player with a
deep love for the blues, and has played alongside Rick in the band Hocus
Pocus Blues for many years His talent and professionalism also keep him in
demand in the studio and he's the unsung bass hero behind many a well known
tune. Martin Fitzgibbon was drummer with Mark in acclaimed roots-rockers
the Dockery Boys, and now drums with the very popular festival band Colvin
Quarmby. He's also an in-demand session musician with hundreds of
recordings to his name.
