“No doubt that he is a slide guitar master. He is the business” – Roots Magazine
Martin Harley is a supremely talented Roots and Blues guitarist, singer and songwriter with a burgeoning global reputation. He’s a devotee to the music that came out of the Mississippi Delta, the slide guitar, and many other forms of roots music. Though Harley’s sound is rooted in the blues it seeks to tell his own story and draws on the ruminations of a musician who has spent much of his life on the road.
Opening the show are local folk rockers, The Wild Romantics. Armed with energetic rock n’ roll hooks, haunting lyrics and harmonies, their music has drawn comparisons to the playful, intimate country/folk of Johnny Cash and June Carter and the energetic, southern driven rock n’ roll in the spirit of The White Stripes. These days, Evan Miller and Aleisha Kalina usually play with a band, but will be going back to their roots as a two piece for this show.
