From the Gulf coast north through the Delta & Piedmont, to the rowdy streets of Chicago, two blues veterans share their vision and souls on original & classic blues. Featuring blues harmonica legend Ronnie Owens on harmonica, vocals and foot drums with his partner in the blues, renowned singer/guitarist Gordon Harrower. Ronnie is widely known for fronting his own popular blues band, 'Li'l Ronnie & the Grand Dukes' for over 30 years while releasing 11 critically acclaimed CDs and performing at Blues Festivals and music venues across the country. Gordon Harrower also plays in the 'Grand Dukes' and fronts his own band 'Rattlesnake Shake'.
The duo setting finds them deep in the blues, playing it the way they feel it. Drop down to the bottom with some extremely strong, raw duets reminiscent of early John Lee Hooker and Big Walter. Blues harmonica master Li'l Ronnie and guitarist / singer Gordon Harrower team up for a joyful journey through some deep, lowdown country blues. In the tradition of great guitar / harp duos like Sonny and Brownie and Cephas and Wiggins, these two explore the roots with a blend of original and classic material... this is what Big Lou on Sirus/XM calls front porch. Even with some amplification this is music to open a couple of cold ones on a Saturday night. - Mark Wenner, The Nighthawks
