ERIN HARPE & THE DELTA SWINGERS
The Christmas Swing


“⭑⭑⭑⭑ Avoiding the perils of predictability, these four New Englanders craft a fresh, genre-crossing group sound...”
– DownBeat Magazine

“Erin Harpe is a hot mama blues singer.”
– Sing Out!

Erin Harpe has been called “one of the most dynamic, talented and exciting roots rocking blues women on the scene” by Living Blues Magazine. Erin Harpe & the Delta Swingers, her Boston Music Award-winning band, are releasing their first ever holiday album, THE CHRISTMAS SWING, on their own Juicy Juju label, through the VizzTone Label Group. Following up their acclaimed 2017 sophomore album, BIG ROAD, the new holiday album is a fun seasonal romp chock full of hooky blues-guitar-fueled gems that you’ll want to listen to each year as the holidays approach. For fans of Chuck Berry, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Bessie Smith, The Record Company, Muddy Waters, and Samantha Fish.
CHRISTMAS SWING features ten songs – including Erin’s own arrangements of traditionals and songs by Chuck Berry, Bessie Smith, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Leadbelly, Bo Carter, and a UK band Erin discovered called Lil’ Lost Lou. Title track “The Christmas Swing” is a re-working of their 2014 hit The Delta Swing, co-penned with special guest Richard Rosenblatt (who also lends harmonica). Building on her last album, Erin’s guitar playing shines as she plays a number of different styles, ranging from acoustic fingerstyle on Bessie Smith’s “At the Christmas Ball” (a duet with pianist John Juxo), to the raw electric guitar on Lightnin’ Hopkins’ “Merry Christmas”, to the early rock n’ roll licks of Chuck Berry’s “Run Run Rudolph.” Her well-known kazoo also makes an appearance on the Smith tune and the (not really holiday-themed, but festive) Bo Carter number “Drink and Get Drunk”, as well as on closer Auld Lang Syne.
The record features Erin Harpe on electric, slide and acoustic guitars and vocals, as well kazoo and percussion; Jim Countryman on bass, claps, and snaps; Matt “Charles” Prozialeck on harmonicas; and Chris Anzalone (Roomful of Blues) on drums and percussion. With special guests John Juxo on piano and Richard Rosenblatt on harmonica. “We had a lot of fun making this album. It’s a holiday album for music fans that don’t necessarily like Christmas music,” declares Erin, “it’s just good music, that will make your holidays more fun!” Whether you celebrate Christmas, or just like holiday music, Erin guarantees fans will love this non-traditional take on Christmas music!
