Mississipi McDonald & The Cotton Mouth Kings
A journey through the south with cool acoustic grooves and real feel.
"Mississippi McDonald is the real deal, with a gravely rich authentic blues voice and the kind of acoustic guitar style that would have graced the porches of many a Clarksdale shanty town.” Yorkshire Times
A stylish blues guitarist, McDonald who has been playing since he was 11 years old. He's toured extensively on the US blues trail and met BB King, Pinetop Perkins, Willie ‘Big Eyes’ Smith and Lucky Peterson.
In 2010, he was part of the team that purchased a gravestone for the late Hi Records recording artist and soul legend, OV Wright.
The purity and controlled power of MacDonald’s voice is beautifully counterbalanced by Rosco’s fine and delicate Sonny Terry influenced soaring harp lines. The duo are at the core of The Cotton Mouth Kings authentic blues sound.

Tim Penn & The Second Line
AN EVENING IN NEW ORLEANS
With a name like The Second Line, it is no surprise that the songs of the New Orleans' piano masters (Professor Longhair, Fats Domino, Dr John, Allen Toussaint) figure heavily in this band's repertoire. But you can expect other influences to be felt as well: Ray Charles, Tom Waits and Tim's own songs and instrumental pieces all add to the musical gumbo.
