Formed in 1991, the English duo Rag Mama Rag has consistently built up its reputation as one of Europe’s finest Country Blues acts. Rag Mama Rag comprises ASHLEY DOW – Henderson acoustic guitar, National and Dobro resonator, bottleneck guitar, Weissenborn Acoustic Lap Steel, ukulele and vocals, and DEBORAH DOW – harmonica, washboard, percussion and backing vocals).  Rag Mama Rag creates an exceptionally full and hard driving rhythmic sound which soon has audiences’ feet tapping. Their repertoire is 20s and 30s blues-based, but extremely varied, encompassing Mississippi Blues, East Coast ragtime sounds, early white country tunes, original compositions and many other regional styles of the period. Touring non-stop, Rag Mama Rag has played at many major festivals in Europe and beyond.
