Erin Harpe and the Delta Swingers (Country-blues singer/guitarist)

Erin has been hailed as “an authentic blues chanteuse”, earning a reputation for her raw style and “total, selfless and compelling immersion in the music” and accomplished finger-picking guitar playing. Like her predecessors Memphis Minnie and Charley Patton, Erin has a wide appreciation of many styles of music, and ventures fearlessly outside the blues to lead her “Other Band”, the electro-funk dance band Lovewhip. Erin has even been known to slip a Lovewhip song into her blues sets, and the dancers don’t seem to mind a bit.
