Erin Harpe has been called, “one of the most dynamic, talented and exciting roots rocking blues women on the scene” by Living Blues Magazine. She was awarded “Blues Artist of the Year” from the Boston Music Awards in 2012 and the Boston Blues Challenge Winner 2018. Erin Harpe and the Delta Swingers are described as, “a dance band that has a unique delta blues flavor and a world music creamy filling… mixing in afrobeat, reggae, funk, and disco with delta blues finger-picking, creating an amazing new sound” by Phil Simon, Live Music News and Reviews. “They won me over with a sound that harkens back to the time of juke joints, with some modern funk and rock woven in. Erin Harpe’s got a righteous set of pipes and plays a mean guitar and the rest of the band has a whole lot of awesome going on.” Aimsel Ponti, fromMaineToday’s Face the Musicsays, “Erin Harpe has it all. The looks, the chops, the voice, the presence and the band all add to an aura that mesmerized the crowd…” The Alternate Root Magazine.“Easily Bonnie Raitt on modern performance enhancing drugs, Harpe is blues mama for our times.
Killer stuff…” statesMidwest Record.
