Friday 8th November Main Stage - De Valence Pavillion and Saturday 9th Afternoon Acoustic Stage - Church House

Erin Harpe has been playing country Blues since she was a little girl, getting her chops from her virtuoso dad, roots/Blues musician & Stella guitar expert Neil Harpe. The two-time “Blues Artist of the Year”, and leader of the band Erin Harpe & the Delta Swingers, has earned a reputation as a captivating performer, playing stages large and small throughout the US, UK and Europe, and opening for everyone from ZZTop to Honeyboy Edwards, Buddy Guy and James Cotton. In Living Blues Magazine, Frank Matheis called Erin “one of the most dynamic, talented and exciting roots rocking blues women on the scene”, noting, “she has it all – a golden voice and guitar chops that dazzle!” Her latest album – “Meet Me In The Middle” (self-produced by Harpe, along with her husband, bassist Jim Countryman) – won the prestigious “Album of the Year” from the New England Music Awards.

Erin’s high-energy performances centre around her exceptional finger-style and boogie blues guitar playing as well as her striking soulful vocals. The sound she creates with her band harkens back to the time of juke joints – updated with more modern influences like funk, soul, rock, and reggae. Her music has drawn comparisons to Muddy Waters, Bonnie Raitt, Canned Heat and Maria Muldaur.
