Jump into the creek and take an invigorating swim with Ben Hunter, Joe Seamons and Phil Wiggins presenting their swirling musical whirlpool of pre-war American roots music. In the UK for a rare visit as one of the main overseas attractions at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections Festival, we were fortunate to grab them for an add-on date before they head back to the USA.
In America, Ben and Joe won the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee, for their superb blend of a cappella field hollers, country blues and fiddle & banjo breakdowns. When Phil joins them on blues harmonica, it just gets even groovier!
Highly regarded by all of their peers, Dom Flemons (formerly of the Carolina Chocolate Drops) invited them to tour and record on his album, Prospect Hill.
Don’t miss the chance to hear these tremendous troubadours live, performing the songs that paved the way for so many artists we enjoy today.
