Erin Harpe has been called “Bonnie Raitt on modern performance enhancing drugs”, and the singer, songwriter, guitarist, & band leader was recently named New England’s “Blues Artist of the Year”. Leader of the award-winning electric blues band Erin Harpe & the Delta Swingers, Erin has recently been gaining attention as a celebrated acoustic guitarist and purveyor of finger-style country blues. Erin grew up learning the style from her dad, Neil Harpe, and watching local Piedmont blues luminaries such as John Cephas & Phil Wiggins, Archie Edwards, John Jackson, Eleanor Ellis, and Warner Williams, at Washington DC’s famed Archie's Barbershop. Erin's new album, MEET ME IN THE MIDDLE, has been called “today’s country blues at its very best” by Living Blues, who crowned Erin “one of the finest fingerpicking acoustic blues singers in the land”! Featuring Erin on acoustic guitars, vocals, kazoo & foot percussion, with longtime partner/bassist Jim Countryman on ukulele bass & backing vocals, it was recorded in their home studio during the pandemic lockdown. The album has gotten rave reviews & airplay – debuting at #13 on Billboard's Blues Chart, and making it to #6 on Relix/Jambands.com Radio Chart, #7 on iTunes Top US Blues Albums, #9 on North American College & Community Radio's Top 30 Blues Chart, #8 (Top 50 Contemporary Blues Albums) & #15 (Top Blues Albums) on Roots Music Report's Charts, and #17 on Living Blues Radio's Chart, also making several 2020 top 10 lists!
