ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Finalist International Blues Challenge 2018!

Greyhound´s Washboard Band uses musical instruments from the past including resonator guitars, washboard and a 100 year old bass drum to create their own roots-influenced blues sound.
This band really makes you feel the blues and puts a smile on your face at the same time.

Greyhound George, vocals, guitars
Wolfgang Voss, washboard and percussion
Andy Grünert, harmonica

The band has won the German Blues Challenge 2017 and reached the finals at the International Blues Challenge 2018.

In the twenties and thirties of the last century this sound could be heard on every street corner in the deep south of the USA. It was the heyday of Blues and Boogie Woogie and the electric guitar had still to be invented. To make themselves heard in the streets, guitar players had to use very loud instruments. They typically used Resonator guitars made of brass or big, low-tuned 12 string instruments. A washboard and a harmonica could be found in almost every household to make a „washboard band“ complete. This CD takes on this tradition with some historical instruments and a lot of new ideas. Enjoy the „Street Corner Blues“!

Greyhound George: vocals, guitar

Washboard Wolf: washboard, percussion
