Dave Lange: One Man Hill Country Blues Band
Lange conjures up the juke-joint blues of the North Mississippi Hill Country. Akin to greats R.L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough, Lange puts a strong emphasis on the “groove” with driving rhythms and percussion; playing drums with his feet when found without a sideman. His steady guitar riffs, few chord changes, and unconventional song structures combined with edgy slide playing on either a three-string cigar box guitar or his howling steel resonator. Lange’s smooth Clapton-esque vocals compliment his highly original sound delivering American roots music in a familiar yet brand new way. Dave can often be found performing for Herndon’s Farmers Market patrons and we are so happy to give the Festival attendees a chance to hear and enjoy this blues man.
