ESO Live! with Chris & Grayson English
April 20, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$20
Event starts at 8PM; doors open at 7:30PM
Chris English offers a combination of deep traditional blues and solid original material. Delta blues is his forte, singing, playing guitar and harp, stamping out the time on an old wooden coca cola crate. He uses vintage guitars from the 20’s and ’30’s to replicate the sound and feeling of the blues he has studied and loves. For over 35 years, he has been true to his art learning the subtleties that make each blues special.
Having grown up in the shadow of his father’s music, Grayson English has performed with his father since 2008. A multi-instrumentalist and SU alumnus, he also works repairing instruments and amplifiers, and has created his own line of handcrafted guitar effect pedals.
The April 22,2017 release of Their newest album, “Howlin’ So Long,” is a collection of performances in home town venues that Chris and Grayson usually play. Original material has been licensed for broadcast on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition and recently was featured on King Biscuit Time with host Sonny Payne.
