ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
David Evans has been performing traditional delta blues since 1962. His first musical partner was the late Alan Wilson of Canned Heat. Although mostly known as a blues scholar with more credentials than Mississippi has mud, his skills as a vocalist and guitarist are astounding, having learned directly from many of the old-time blues musicians who were still performing during the 1960s. Evans' style is honest and embraces the great folk tradition to which he has devoted his life.
A Harvard University graduate, Evans' is also author of Big Road Blues. In addition, he is the producer of High Water Records and has been involved with the careers of blues artists including R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Jessie Mae Hemphill, among others. His Memphis group, The Last Chance Jug Band, has twice been featured on the nationally syndicated radio program Beale Street Caravan, and released Shake That Thing! on the Inside Memphis label in 1997.
Already, Match Box Blues has been lauded by blues legends Charlie Musselwhite and Fito de la Parra of Canned Heat. Although his recording career is extensive, this is David Evans' solo debut. Recorded in May of 2001, it shows him to be of equal stature as a blues musician as well as scholar. Some of the fourteen tracks include members of the Last Chance Jug Band, and all are captivating performances that are sure to stir enthusiasm among blues and folk music fans from Memphis to Mecca. Match Box Blues will be marketed to national media and will be heavily advertised in blues publications.
