Rag Mama Rag - 500x700.jpg

We are so pleased to have secured the services of Rag Mama Rag as part of their 2019 UK tour. Their gigs at the Crawdaddy are always one of the highlights of our season.

Their superb musicianship and different slant on the blues has made them one of the best acts to have graced our stage. Formed in 1991, the English duo Rag Mama Rag, have slowly and consistently built up their reputation as one of Europe’s finest Country Blues acts and are in great demand on the Festival circuit.

With an interesting and wide range of instruments, (Ashley Dow plays Henderson Acoustic Guitar, National & Dobro Resonator Bottleneck Guitars, Weissenborn Acoustic Lap Steel, Ukulele and Vocals, with Deborah Dow on Harmonica, Washboard, Percussion and Backing Vocals), RAG MAMA RAG create an exceptionally full and hard driving rhythmic sound which soon has the audience’s 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.
