Kent DuChaine the American Delta Bluesman
Kent DuChaine’s ability to immerse his audience into his world,his life & his heart is unrivalled. His superb musicianship, storytelling & self deprecating humour is why he is loved the world over. DuChaine has shared the stage with many of the greatest Bluesmen & Blueswomen
including Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker & Margie Evans. His two year collaboration with Bluesman Johnny Shines (travelling companion of Robert Johnson King of the Delta Blues) gave him access to a huge store of knowledge about the early Bluesmen & Blues music itself. DuChaine plays an 83 year old “National Steel” guitar kitted out with extra heavy gauge strings to be able to cope with his powerful playing style.
In 2015 Kent was honoured to be asked by Ben “Boogie” Waters to play in a tribute concert to B B King in central London with music Legends Bill Wyman, Elliott Randall & many other luminaries.
