Formed in 1991, the English duo RAG MAMA RAG, have slowly and consistently built up their reputation as one of Europes finest Country Blues acts.
With an interesting and wide range of instruments, (ASHLEY DOW, Henderson Acoustic Guitar, National & Dobro Resonator Bottleneck Guitars, Weissenborn Acoustic Lap Steel, Ukulele and Vocals, plus DEBORAH DOW, Harmonica, Washboard, Percussion and Backing Vocals), RAG MAMA RAG create an exceptionally full and hard driving rhythmic sound which soon has audiences feet tapping.
Their repertoire is 20s and 30s Blues based, but extremely varied, encompassing Mississippi Blues, East Coast Ragtime sounds, early White Country tunes, Original Compositions, and many other regional styles of the 20s and 30s period.
Touring non stop in Europe during the last ten years RAG MAMA RAG have clocked up well over 2000 concerts and have played at many major festivals in France, Belgium and Germany.
Currently based in France.
