The Blues Preachers – Fusion Blues

The Blues Preachers

The Blues Preachers will take you to another place and time, somewhere between 1920 and 1940. Hailing from Australia, their style is a fusion of good old blues, rags, gospel and hillbilly folk. Driving fingerstyle and slide-guitar combined with tasteful harmonica and old-school vocal harmonies.

Furthermore, they create a traditional sound that will have you on the edge of your seats. The Blues Preachers will make you want to get up & dance with their joyful country & ragtime blues & send a shiver down your spine with their atmospheric feels.

They have secured a reputation as one of the best acoustic blues & roots acts in Australia. For more information on these guys check out their website: http://bluespreachers.com/
