Steamer, an acoustic blues band based on the South Coast of England, comprises Guitar/Vocals, Bass, Percussion, and sometimes Harmonica too. Steamer plays a lively mix of songs, some of which were first heard around 80 years ago when the blues was emerging from the Delta. Others will have been played a little more recently, but the common theme is uptempo and upbeat with little of the misery, doom and gloom so often mistakenly associated with the genre. All played at a volume level that doesn't offend the ears.
With songs from Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Sonny Boy Williamson, Big Bill Broonzy, Howling Wolf, Robert Johnson, Blind Blake, Lazy Lester, Dr Feelgood, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Bob Dylan, and many more.
