William Ferris: « One of the most exciting blues sounds today »

Muddy Gurdy is one of the most exciting blues sounds today.  Tia Gouttebel, Gilles Chabenat, and Marco Glomeau embrace and celebrate Mississippi Hill Country blues with special skill.  Tia’s impressive guitar and vocals are complimented with Marco’s percussion and Gilles’s hurdy gurdy to deliver a powerful sound.  Tia’s version of Jessie Mae Hemphill’s “She Wolf” is especially moving.
