rag mama rag in concert


On Saturday 1st April we were treated to a wonderful night of Mississippi blues and country music by a talented duo, Rag Mama Rag. From the first couple of bars, the driving rhythm had the audience tapping their feet and dancing.

Ashley played several instruments; steel bottleneck guitar, Hawaiian slide guitar, ukulele and acoustic guitar, while wife Debbie provided perfect accompaniment with haunting blues harmonica and washboard percussion.

We were treated to classics such as “Hesitation Blues”, “Keep on Truckin' Mama”, “Minnie the Moocher” & Robert Johnson's “Kind hearted Woman” alongside rags and self-penned tunes.

It was a fantastic performance that left the audience shouting for 'more', which they duly complied with. Currently the pair live in France and only tour Britain a couple of times a year, so hopefully they will visit Mareham-le-Fen again in the near future. Make sure you catch them next time, you won't be disappointed.
