Chronique Abs mag mars 2021

Your beautiful CD Muddy Gurdy «Homecoming » just arrived and truly made my day. It is a magnificent work that I will share with others.
Your music continues to evolve in such creative, powerful ways. Keep up your beautiful work and let me know whenever I can be of assistance.
William Ferris (Folkloriste spécialiste des musiques du sud des USA, Universitaire, Photographe, Réalisateur)

I received your Muddy Gurdy « Homecoming » album, and it blows me away ! I just listened to it loud like you suggested and LOVED it !
You have taken many songs that i know well and transformed them into your own phenomenally unique and powerful sound.
By combining the sounds of the Hill Country and the hill country of the region where you liv in France, i can get what i always yearn for : a new blues style !
Keep up your great work (i know you will) . George Mitchell

In the Blues Foundation newsletter after the Folk Alliance Conference

The Blues Foundation sponsored the Official Blues Showcase, sharing the music of Doug MacLeod, Janiva Magness, Muddy Gurdy, Ray Bonneville, and Shakura S’aida.

The Blues Foundation mentioned Muddy Gurdy in their February, 2020, newsletter. Muddy Gurdy performed during an official showcase on Thursday, January 30, on the Grand Chenier stage, sponsored by the Blues Foundation, for the Folk Alliance Internation Conference which was held in New Orleans this year.

Live on WWOZ’ Blues Eclectic

Muddy Gurdy went live on Blues Eclectic, on WWOZ, New Orleans’s world-famous radio station, before performing at Chickie Wah Wah.

Elmore Magazine: “North Mississippi blues as if they were born there”

France’s Muddy Gurdy, with a left-of-center lineup, turned out to be a pleasant surprise. With a lissome lead singer playing muscular guitar, this group plays North Mississippi blues as if they were born there—though the French accent on the lyrics is a giveaway—and they’ve brought back a vintage hurdy gurdy, something we don’t hear every day, even at Folk Alliance, where odd instruments aren’t odd. The room was in almost total darkness, but we’ll get a better look at another showcase, that’s one of the many advantages of Folk Alliance’s setup.

Hurdy-gurdy player Gilles Chabenat, guitarist and singer Tia Gouttebel and percussionnist Marc Glomeau will fly to New Orleans in January, 2020 for a series of official showcases in front of professionals from all over the world (booking agents, bookers, record labels…), from January 22 to 26 at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel.

What a symbol that Muddy-Gurdy travels to New Orleans with its hurdy-gurdy…
