More about “The Christmas Swing” album...
As the holidays approach with the dreaded barrage of Christmas music, Erin Harpe offers an alternative with her latest holiday release “The Christmas Swing” – “a totally “un-traditional” set for folks who don’t really care for holiday music. ...[it] ain’t Der Bingle or the Rat Pack, but it sho’ nuff goes down easy with your favorite cup of kindness!” (Sheryl & Don Crow, Nashville Blues & Roots Alliance). This holiday, fill your celebrations with a “sassy dose of jumping blues for Christmas” and grab your limited edition vinyl copy, available for pre-sale starting on October 8th!
THE CHRISTMAS SWING made it to #2 last season on the Roots Music Report’s Top 50 Holiday Album Charts, AND #17 on the Living Blues Charts in December! The album is a fun seasonal romp chock full of hooky blues-guitar-fueled gems that you’ll want to listen to each year as the holidays approach – in fact, Steve Jones of Blues Blast Magazine says, “I will be giving it many more spins this holiday season and beyond.” The new album THE CHRISTMAS SWING features ten songs – including a couple of Erin’s originals and her own arrangements of traditionals and songs by Chuck Berry, Bessie Smith, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Leadbelly, and more. The title track is a re-working of Erin Harpe & the Delta Swingers’ 2014 hit The Delta Swing, co-penned with special guest Richard Rosenblatt (who also lends harmonica). Building on her last album, Erin’s guitar playing shines as she plays a number of different styles, ranging from acoustic fingerstyle on Bessie Smith’s “At the Christmas Ball” (a duet with pianist John Juxo), to raw electric guitar on Lightnin’ Hopkins’ “Merry Christmas”, to slide-guitar (with perfectly matched harp) on Jingle Bell Blues, to the early rock n’ roll licks of Chuck Berry’s “Run Run Rudolph.” Her well-known kazoo also makes an appearance on the Smith tune and the (not really holiday-themed, but festive) Bo Carter number “Drink And Get Drunk”, as well as on closer Auld Lang Syne. The record features Erin Harpe on vocals and guitar (electric, slide and acoustic), as well kazoo; Jim Countryman on bass; Matt “Charles” Prozialeck on harmonicas; and Chris Anzalone (Roomful of Blues) on drums.
