Äntligen börjar vi komma i mål med skivan brukar man säga. Men i detta fall har det gått snabbare än något band jag varit med i. Ett rep eller snarare ett jam och sedan inspelning! Vissa låtar hade jag inte ens hört innan vi spelade in dem. I mars släpps skivan med Bert Deivert & Copperhead Run.
￼￼￼“Bert Deivert is a master of his craft and a master of The Blues”— PBS RADIO, AUS
Bert Deivert is one of the top blues mandolinists in the world today. His band together with master Swedish musicians Zander, Pettersson, and Lindholm, is innovative and international, as well as true to the roots of early country blues.
Their music blends folk, jazz, and blues, and pays homage to a blues style and tradition that has nearly disappeared.
Weaving modern uses of electric guitar, bass and drums from later blues from the 50’s – 70’s with early pre-war blues has resulted in a meld of exciting sounds and resonance. The repertoire is original material, traditional, and
modern songs from Mississippi and the South done in their own driving style.
